Super League of Malawi (Sulom) has rescheduled games involving Mighty Wanderers and Nyasa Big Bullets for contributing more than three players each to the Flames for tomorrow’s international friendly against Tanzania.
The Nomads were scheduled to face Red Lions on Sunday while the People’s Team were supposed to take on Ntopwa FC this afternoon.
Sulom general secretary Williams Banda confirmed the changes yesterday, saying: “As per rules and regulations, the two teams will be exempted from the weekend fixtures.
“We were only waiting for the final squad and they have been communicated accordingly.”
Both matches have since been shifted to Wednesday and the venues remain the same.
Wanderers have contributed six players to the Flames squad that has travelled to Dar es Salaam, namely goalkeeper William Thole, defender Stanley Sanudi, midfielders Rafick Namwera, Yamikani Chester and Vitumbiko Kumwenda and striker Vincent Nyangulu.
On the other hand, Bullets have contributed five players and these are goalkeeper Ernest Kakhobwe, defenders Nickson Nyasulu and Eric Kaonga and midfielders Chimwemwe Idana and Chimango Kayira.
Meanwhile, leaders Silver Strikers can open a three-point gap at the summit of the 16-team top-flight league this afternoon when they face Kamuzu Barracks at Civo Stadium in Lilongwe.
The Central Bankers are tied on 39 points with second-placed Bullets on, but have a game in hand, having played 18 matches.
