Escom Sisters have said they are not favourites against Woget in their K1 million (about $3 333) Rainbow Paints Top Six Series semi-final encounter tomorrow (Saturday) at the Blantyre Youth Centre.
The league leadersâ€™ coach Griffin Saenda said, although on paper they have an upper hand over Woget, they will treat them like any another team.
â€œIn the Presidential Cup, we were paired against Blue Eagles in the semi-finals and we were favourites by far, but we were beaten and it was embarrassing. That was a lesson that in knockout games, no team is a favourite. So, we are cautious in our preparations, but we are ready for the showdown,â€ said Saenda.
However the centre of attraction at the BYC will be the second semi-final between sworn rivals MTL Queens and Bingu Tigresses.
With Tigresses having an upper hand over Queens in recent results, the latter have vowed to change the face of their affairs.
â€œThis is a tough game as we face rivals. But we have developed a new strategy against the top teams that have been giving us tough time. This is one of the cups we want to win, so we are geared it,â€ said Queens captain Joana Kalichero.
Tigers coach Charles Mhango also declared war on Queens, saying their target is to become inaugural champions of the competition.
