MTV Max Bullets will get into this afternoon’s encounter against Be Forward Wanderers with all guns blazing to end their winless streak and long stay at the bottom of TNM Super League log table.
Max, who are yet to win in 11 league games, anchor the 16-team log table with four points from four draws and they will move two places up the ladder if they beat the Nomads in this mid-week showdown at Kamuzu Stadium.
Although they have so far lost all their three games against Wanderers in cup competitions and friendly, Max Bullets coach Trevor Kajawa believes his charges will have an upper hand in today’s affair.
“It will be a very difficult game but we have a belief that we will carry the day because we know Wanderers will be playing under pressure. We gave them a good run during the Presidential Cup quarter-final match last week when we narrowly lost 1-2 at the same venue,” Kajawa said.
“We know plucking our first win against the Nomads will boost our morale and set us on the right path to earning more victories in the league.”
But Wanderers team manager Steve Madeira said following their 0-1 Presidential semi-final defeat by Moyale Barracks last weekend, his team has now shifted focus on today’s league encounter.
“Obviously, we are disappointed losing in the Presidential Cup semi-final. But now we have put that disappointment behind to focus on our league match against Max Bullets. We desperately want to collect maximum points so as to slowly catch up with the rest of the teams,” Madeira said.
Wanderers are 13th on the log table with 11 points from eight games, having won two, drawn five and lost one. If they win today, they will move up three places to displace defending champions Nyasa Big Bullets. Blue Eagles lead the pack with 21 points. n
