After a five-week break, domestic football powerhouses—Nyasa Big Bullets and Be Forward Wanderers—return to TNM Super League action this weekend.
Wanderers return to action this afternoon against Red Lions at Kamuzu Stadium while Bullets face Karonga United tomorrow at Mzuzu Stadium.
The Nomads lie on unenviable 13th position in the 16-member league with eight points from seven matches whereas the People’s Team is 10th with 12 points from six matches.
Wanderers team manager Stevie Madeira yesterday said although it will be tough playing a catch-up game, they are looking forward to redeeming themselves.
“We do not have the luxury of options, all the matches coming up are a must-win for us as we seek to find our way up the table,” he said.

On the other hand, Bullets’ outspoken technical director Billy Tewesa said despite having inadequate time to prepare, they are ready for league anchors Karonga United who are still winless in eight games having drawn three and lost five.
“The challenge is that we have another tricky [Presidential Cup quarter-final] match against Kabwafu on Saturday [today] before we face Karonga on Sunday, but we are ready,” he said.
He also played down suggestions that the unresolved financial issues between the players and the executive committee, could have a negative impact on the team’s performance.
“It is an internal issue that the executive is looking into and it cannot in anyway affect the team’s performance,” he said. n
