Flames are expected to relocate from the Kamuzu Stadium artificial turf to a grass training ground ahead of their 2013 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier in Ghana.
The first leg of the final qualifying round will be played on a grass pitch at an Accra Stadium on September 8, hence the Flamesâ€™ relocation, coach Kinnah Phiri said on Wednesday.
â€œI am going to book a ground, we might certainly move to Moneymen Ground today. It does affect players when you train on an astro turf and end up playing on a grass pitch. On grass pitch there are bound to be some bumps while on an artificial turf, the ball just rolls, so we have to readjust our playâ€ Kinnah explained.
Flames, who have welcomed Moses Chavula and Dave Banda, will stop over on September 4 in Liberia for a tune up match before proceeding to Accra.
Meanwhile, Ghana, too, have elected to play Liberia in a strength building match for the return match in Malawi, according to Ghana press reports. Ghana will, after meeting Malawi, travel to Liberia.
But Ghanaâ€™s top striker Asamoah Gyan has excused himself from the Liberia strength building match.
Kinnah said the Black Starsâ€™ decision to prepare for the return leg in Blantyre with Liberia shows that the Liberians are a strong side.
â€œMay be they have also heard that we will play Liberia,â€ he said.
