Masters Security FC have described Be Forward Wanderers as an easy team to beat during their Carlsberg Cup final scheduled for Kamuzu Stadium in Blantyre tomorrow.
Masters are in their first ever cup final while Wanderers are in their fifth consecutive Carlsberg Cup final.
However, Masters general secretary Zachariah Nyirenda yesterday said despite the odds being in Wanderers’ favour, the Nomads should be scared because Masters booted out defending champions Nyasa Big Bullets in the semi-finals.
“This is a point of no return. It will be absurd to lose to Wanderers after beating the defending champions. Wanderers should be very much afraid,” he said.
Nyirenda added that his charges will have an upper hand because they will not play under pressure.
But his Wanderers counterpart Mike Butao said they cannot afford to lose the Carlsberg Cup final after failing to win other cups this season.
“What we know is that Masters stand on our way to the ultimate glory and we will beat them. Cup competitions are unpredictable, but Wanderers FC is a big club that cannot play second fiddle to Masters,” he said.
Meanwhile, Castel Malawi has organised a number of activities that will spice up the final from tomorrow morning.
Castel Malawi senior brands manager (alcoholics) Widdey Nsona yesterday said the events will start at 9am with a trophy parade by the Malawi Police Brass Band from the Clock Tower up to the stadium.
“The gates at the stadium will be open at 11am when the Malawi Defence Force [MDF] helicopter will land at the Upper Stadium [Hockey Stadium] for the trophy handover,” he said.
At 2pm, MDF skydivers will jump from the plane onto the field before Carlsberg Cup brand ambassador Gerald Phiri Jnr presents the trophy to guest of honour and Castel managing director Gilles Leclerc.
