Epac lost 2-0 to Blue Eagles whereas Red Lions suffered a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Big Bullets FC in the semi-finals last week.
Lions coach Collins Nkuna said their team is prepared to make up for last weekâ€™s loss to the Peopleâ€™s Team.
Nkuna claims their loss to Bullets was fuelled by what he called â€˜ incompetentâ€™ officiation on the part of referee Fransisco Scova whom he claimed disallowed his teamâ€™s two clear goals.
Soon after the match Lions players manhandled Scova who sustained injuries.
“We are travelling to Lilongwe to get a consolation from the tournament. But our plea is on officiation and we will need the referee to handle the game professionally.
“Teams should win games on merit not because they were favoured by officiation,” said Nkuna.
Epac coach Abbas Makawa also said his team is in high spirits and looking forward to a win.
“We are playing at home and we should be able to utilise that advantage. All the players are in shape and ready for the match,” he said.
Epacâ€™s marksman Ishmael Thindwa is expected to lead his team in attack. Other potential match winners for Epac are Jafali Chande, Rodrick Douglas, Noel Mlemba, Tsanzo Dalio and Bright Phiri while Lions will bank their hopes on veteran Pritchard Mwansa and Dan Katunga among others.
