Kabwafu are leaving no stone unturned in preparation for the Carlsberg Cup semi-final match against Escom United by lining up a couple of warm-up matches.
On Sunday, Kabwafu survived a scare from Mzuzu and Districts Football League (MDFL) side Nkhata Bay Police in a friendly match that attracted a huge crowd at Nkhata Bay Community Centre ground.
The match was abandoned in the 87th minute when the hosts were awarded a penalty as Kabwafu led 1-0. Kabwafu reportedly refused to continue playing because of poor visibility as it was getting dark.
Kabwafuâ€™s coach Oscar Kaunda admitted that the police side gave them a good run.
â€œIt was good that we faced Nkhata Bay Police just a day after we booted out Epac from the Carlsberg Cup. They [Nkhata Bay] gave us a good test,â€ said Kaunda.
Kabwafu are reported to have been swayed by the performance of four Nkhata Bay Police players, namely exciting winger Dominic Simwela, Lot Kasambara, John Manda and Brave Vinkhumbo who have been invited for further assessment.
Nkhata Bay Police coach Isaac Milanzi said: â€œIt was a good game and the result was not a fair reflection of the game.â€
In recent years, Nkhata Bay Police has been a breeding ground for some big-name Super League players such as Luka Milanzi, Frank and John Banda, Mphatso and Seba Mhone.
