After a disappointing trip from Lilongwe where they lost the Standard Bank Cup to Civo United last Sunday, Mighty Be Forward Wanderers have given their technical panel and players a challenge to win all the remaining league games and finish on a better position.
The Nomads general secretary Mike Butao told Nyasa Times on Tuesday that they have told their players to forget the Standard Bank woes and focus on the remaining league games.
“Apologies to our supporters. How we react to this disappointment going forward will show us the true quality of players and technical panel that we have. The aim now is to win all the remaining league games and finish as high up the table as we can. That is the challenge we have given the players and technical panel,” said Butao.
He also said they hope this disappointment and the setbacks they have had this season will toughen them up mentally and prepare better for next season.
Butao also assured the Nomads fans not to lose heart saying they have a young squad which is learning and maturing all the time.
“Losing the cup final was a big disappointment and more importantly a big lesson to the players that football is and can only be won on the pitch,” said Butao.
He said after beating Bullets in the Carlsberg Cup Final players thought they would simply sweep Civo away, “We were given a proper shock.”
He said they have devised a strategy to entertain their fans and score goals in the remaining League games.
The Nomads first test is on Saturday as they take on Mafco FC at Kamuzu Stadium.
