Red Lions out for revenge against Silver: Carlsberg Cup

Red Lions  host Silver Strikers  at the Balaka Stadium  in their Carlsberg Cup round of 16   assignment on Wednesday afternoon hoping to  revenge  the defeat they suffered in the hands of the bankers last Sunday.

Prichard Mwansa: Red Lions will revenge

In their previous meeting last Sunday in the TNM Super League, the bankers clipped the soldiers 2-0 at Civo Stadium.

The soldiers  will be banking on their home run to stun   Lovemore Fazil’s charges who have been stuttering in recent times.

“We know Silver  will come here to salvage another victory but  we  will  fight hard for victory ,” said  Prichard Mwansa, assistant coach of Red Lions.

“We lost against them on Sunday  and going to this one means we must fight as we want to consolidate  our respect against them.

“Everybody is aware what they bring here. Although we are at home, we must never underestimate them.

“We know they are capable of winning games and we must respect them – Silver  have quality players.

“I am sure we will be ready for them come match day and we hope to show them an exit door in this cup.”

The Zomba based  giants will also be desperate for a win  because they have not been consistent in their performances in recent times.

They lost to Be Forward Wanderers, Civil Sporting Club and the bankers in the League despite a six star start in the same elite League.

However, Red Lions  will have to ensure their  defence is solid and avoid conceding goals, as the bankers have a lethal striker in Mathews Sibale, who is scoring at least in each and every game for his team.

In the other camp, Silver Strikers coach Lovemore Fazil said they are looking forward to face the soldiers at their own backyard.

“We are set for them, and l can assure our fans that they come in their large numbers at Balaka because victory is what they should expect from us,” said Fazil, who has Airtel Cup already in his cabinet this season at Area 47.
