Silver Strikers could, by sunset today, reclaim the Super League top position, but the bankers must be thoroughly equipped to breeze past Kamuzu Barracks (KB) which, as some teams may testify, has graduated into a massively tough battalion.
In the build-up to this match, KB whitewashed Dwangwa 5-0, thumped leaders Blue Eagles 4-0 before beating MTV Max Bullets 2-0.
But their revival was halted last week when they lost to Azam Tigers before drawing one-all with fellow army side Red Lions.
Silver currently lie second of the table with 19 points, three adrift of leaders Eagles. They have each played nine matches
charges against underrating the opponents.
“Kamuzu Barracks is unpredictable team. Today it can play good football and tomorrow it does the opposite. Therefore, we have to be very careful with our approach,” he said.
In their clashes last season, there was no winner. The first game ended two-all and the other goalless.
The only injury reported from both camps is Bankers’ defender Levison Maganizo. Fazili hopes he will resume training next week after a long lay-off.
In other encounters this afternoon, one of the title favourites Mafco can close the gap at the top with victory over Epac who they face at Civo Stadium.
Mafco lies forth just four points off the top and is coming from a hard fought 1-0 victory over Moyale last Saturday while Epac shocked the football circles when it collected six points from the Northern Region triumphing over table anchors Karonga United and ambitious Mzuni.
At Mzuzu Stadium, Karonga face Azam Tigers which is occupying position six.
