Nyasa Big Bullets and Be Forward Wanderers have admitted that they will be under pressure as they seek to play a catch-up game in the TNM Super League after a lengthy lay-off due to national team engagements.
The two teams were not assigned league games in the past four weeks having contributed more than three players to the Flames for the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations’qualifier against Zimbabwe and the Cosafa Castle Cup.bullet
As of yesterday, Bullets were on ninth position with 12 points having won three and drawn three while the Nomads were 12th with eight points from seven games. They have won once, lost once and drawn five. Other teams have played between nine and 10 games.
The two teams are set to return to league action this weekend following Flames elimination from the Cosafa Cup last Thursday.
Bullets team manager Rahim Ishmail said: “We will definitely be under pressure because it is not easy to play a catch-up game.
“Of course, we have a number of games in hand, but that is no guarantee that we will do well and that is exactly where the pressure comes in. Anyway, we will have to take each game as it comes.”
On his part, Nomads general secretary Mike Butao said: “Obviously, the pressure is there, but we welcome the resumption of matches.”
