Nyasa Big Bullets will kick-start their CAF Champions League preparations with an international friendly match against Zanzibar national champions Jeshi la Kujenga Uchumi Sports Club (JKU SC) this Saturday.
Bullets chief executive officer Fleetwood Haiya said the People’s Team will host the Zanzibar outfit at Kamuzu Stadium in Blantyre.
“It is in preparation for the CAF tourney for both teams,” he said.
Haiya also admitted that the People’s Team has slumped in form lately.
“Indeed, we have slackened on game intensity, but we will improve in the upcoming games,” he said.
Bullets were booted out of the Carlsberg Cup on Saturday by Masters Security who proceeded to the finals 4-3 after post-match penalties after playing out a one-all draw in regulation time at Civo Stadium in Lilongwe.
Nevertheless, the People’s Team are still favourites to win the TNM Super League title as they lead the 16-team log table with 52 points from 22 games.
Assistant coach Eliah Kananji also said the team needs to go back to the drawing board and work on its shortfalls.
