Mighty Wanderers have vowed to take it tough against Silver Strikers in their last TNM Super League match this Sunday. This is despite a win for them benefitting their rivals Big Bullets who still have slim chances of winning the title.
The Nomads were reacting to suggestions from certain quarters that they would take it easy against Silver in their last game as a win for them would boost Bullets’ chances of winning the title and give them an advantage in the chase for Carlsberg Malawi sponsorship.
The Nomads general secretary David Kanyenda dismissed such suggestions, saying his side will play their lungs out.
“In any case, Silver can afford to lose against us because we do not see how Bullets can overhaul the goal aggregate against Red Lions who are also fighting for the fourth position just like us.
“Silver do not need our help, they have been consistent and they deserve to be where they are. Let us give them credit. Bullets have come to the party late,” said Kanyenda.
He also argued that performance is not the only index which Carlsberg Malawi will measure in determining the team to offer the ultimate sponsorship.
Bullets general secretary Higger Mkandawire said their focus is to win their remaining game.
“Of course, the result of the Silver versus Wanderers game could have a minimal significance on us, but our focus is on our final game against Red Lions. Whether Wanderers will approach the game casually or not, it will be up to them,” said Mkandawire.
Silver have a superior goal difference of 10 goals compared to BB, but that could be reduced or increased depending on the outcome of the final matches.
Bullets have 55 points, three short of Silver’s haul. They will both wind up their league assignments at the weekend.
