Nyasa Big Bullets are impressed with friendly games they played in Tanzania against JKU of Zanzibar and Simba from mainland last week in preparation for CAF Champions League game against Kenya’s Gor Mahia.
The games, played on Thursday and Friday, ended in goalless draws, but Bullets beat JKU 2-0 at Kamuzu Stadium in Blantyre three weeks ago in another friendly game.
Bullets chief executive officer Fleetwood Haiya said the games had offered them a good test to work on their weaknesses ahead of the Champions League game.
“The games were very crucial in our preparation for CAF and not conceding a goal in both games is a good result. We have successfully achieved our purpose of the friendlies,” he said.
Haiya commended Bullets board of directors for supporting the trip.
“We thank the board for allowing us to have the friendlies abroad,” he said.
The CEO said the team would now focus on preparations for the Gor Mahia game.
“No more friendlies as next week is the CAF fixture week.”
