Nyasa Big Bullets FC sent an envoy to spy on their next opponent in the Presidential Cup quarter-finals.
Technical director Billy Tewesa and coach Franco Ndawa were spotted at VIP Stands at Silver Stadium on Wednesday when Silver Strikers lost to Blue Eagles in the round of 16 play-offs.
Eagles won 4-2 through post-match penalties after a goalless draw at the end of regulation time to book a date against Bullets in the quarter-finals.
Thuso Paipi and Lucky Malata converted for the bankers while Phillip Masiye, Wister Phiri, Gilbert Chirwa and Alufeous Nyoni scored for Eagles.
Tewesa confirmed that their mission was to spy on their eventual opponents.
“We wanted to see the strength of which team we will face in quarter-finals for planning purpose. We will come again on Sunday to watch them for the second time as they will take on Silver again in TNM Super League fixture. We don’t want to leave any stone unturned since Eagles are enjoying a rich vein of form this season,” said Tewesa.
He said he is expecting a tough game against Eagles as both teams are yet to lose this season.
Eagles coach Derklerk Msakakuona said they will go back to the drawing table to prepare for Big Bullets.
The coach gave credit to God for the victory which comes at a time when the Area 30 outfit is leading the TNM Super League log table with 18 points from six games.
“It was a difficult game but God gave us victory today,” Msakakuona said after the match. n
