-round by hosting league anchors MTV Max Bullets at Silver Stadium this afternoon.
Victory for the Bankers, which looks inevitable as Max Bullets are battling their own demons, will propel them to second position with 32 points, just two points off leaders Blue Eagles who they face this Saturday.
Having been eliminated from the Presidential Cup in the early stages, fourth-placed Silver lost the Carlsberg Cup final to Be Forward Wanderers on Saturday to cap a season of mixed fortunes, so far.
Silver coach Lovemore Fazili said the match is an opportunity to erase the Carlsberg Cup blues.
“We have a chance to put our season back on track. A win can bring our morale back,” he said with caution though, “we will approach the match with seriousness because teams in relegation zone can spring surprises.”
Meanwhile, ninth-placed Wanderers will also end their Super League exile this afternoon. They play away to Red Lions at Zomba Community Centre ground.
However, Nomads assistant coach Elia Kananji believes they can still challenge for the title.“The second round has just started so we are not far much off from the top when you consider that other teams have played two more games,” he said.
Against Lions, the Nomads will be without defender Stanley Sanudi who has accumulated two yellow cards but Kananji said they are not losing sleep over his absence.
“What we are rather worried with is the danger Red Lions can cause. But we can win the match if we have the fighting spirit we have adopted recently,” said Kananji.
Red Lions are currently a place above relegation zone. They are tied on 14 points with 14th-placed Karonga United. n
