Epac FC United said yesterday they are not intimidated by Airborne FC’s impressive form that saw them score five goals past a hapless Moyale FC on Saturday.
The two sides face each other in the TNM Super League at Civo United today, rekindling the rivalry that characterised their fixture when they both played in the Chipiku League three seasons ago.
“It sure is going to be a tough fixture and an exciting one considering that Airborne are improving with every game, but we are up for it. My players now are playing as a complete team and I have no doubt that we will collect the three points,” said coach Audley Makonyola.
But in a telephone interview from Salima, Airborne coach Henry Khembo said his side wants to make up for lost points in the first-round.
“We are going to Lilongwe to collect points so that we are on a better position on the log. We have played Epac before and we know what to do to contain and beat them. We are in form and the players are in high spirits,” said a buoyed and upbeat Khumbo.
When the two sides met in the first-round, they drew 2-2.
Former Silver Strikers hitman Asedi Ayami, who scored a hat-trick against Moyale on Sunday, will be the focus the fixture.
Matindi Radio have announced that they will award Ayami for his hat-trick with a ball.
“We are awarding all players that have scored a hat-trick. Today’s turn will be Ayami’s,” said Kim Kamau of Matindi.
