FCB Nyasa Bullets coach Kallisto Pasuwa says he expects a tough match at the dreaded Nankhaka Stadium in Lilongwe as the defending champions face Blue Eagles in TNM Super League.
Straight from a one-all draw against relegation-threatened Red Lions at Balaka Stadium in a midweek fixture, Bullets, who have 55 points, but with two games in hand, are on the road again as they look to consolidate their lead at the top of the 16-team log table.
Any mistake in this encounter
will give a chance to second-placed rivals Mighty Mukuru Wanderers, who are a point below, to leapfrog them once they beat Mighty Wakawaka Tigers on Wednesday at Kamuzu Stadium in Blantyre.
Pasuwa said the match against the Malawi Police Service outfit will not be different from the one against Red Lions.
The Zimbabwean tactician said he expects a tough opponent as Eagles are equally in dire need of full points.
“Now we have another task, a different one, but very difficult as well.
“So, we just need to pull ourselves together and go to Nankhaka with a positive mind,” he said.
Blue Eagles are on position nine with 34 points from 28 games.
They are eyeing top eight finish as they play their last but one match before they wrap up the season.
Coach Eliah Kananji said they are ready for the match which will decide their fate in the top eight quest.
He said: “Obviously it will be a tough match for us as well.
“They [Bullets] are eying the title while we want to at least, finish in top eight.
“We all want full points. But we are ready for them as well.”
From Lilongwe, Bullets, who won the first round encounter 3-0 at Kamuzu Stadium in Blantyre, will be on the road again to Karonga to face Karonga United on November 22
