Kamuzu Barracks (KB) FC will approach this afternoon’s Presidential Cup tie against Epac FC with caution following a humiliating 1-4 loss to the same opponent last Monday in a TNM Super League fixture.
The two sides face each other again at Civo Stadium in Lilongwe barely three after the league clash and it will be pride at stake for KB.
Speaking in an interview on Wednesday, KB team manager Francis Shaba, who last season served on Epac technical panel, said they have recovered from the loss and are focused on defeating Epac.
“It would be foolhardy for Epac to underestimate us. We lost, yes, but this is a different game and we cannot afford to lose again. We are taking a new approach and will be cautious unlike on Monday,” he said.
He attributed to the poor start to the season to late preparations.
On his part, Epac coach Audley Makonyola said the pressure is on KB.
“They would want to revenge and in the process play under pressure. We have been working hard in training. Despite victory over KB, I observed some weakness in our central play. We have polished up and will be a better side that on Monday,” said Makonyola.
