Azam Tigers, who are among three teams that stand in Big Bullets’ way to a first TNM Super League title in 11 years, have warned the People’s Team to expect a fierce Kamuzu Stadium contest tomorrow.
Tigers’ outspoken technical advisor Robin Alufandika downplayed the fact that the Kau Kau have some injuries and that they lost 1-0 in their last league meeting with Blantyre United at the same venue.
“Expect sparks to fly when we meet Bullets. Come and see us perform wonders. We know that Bullets want to wrap up the title, but we are also looking at improving our standings on the log table,” Alufandika explained.
Bullets top the 15-member log table on 53 points, six ahead of second-placed Moyale Barracks and nine of third-positioned Blue Eagles. Tigers are seventh on 37 points with four games to wrap up the season.
The People’s Team chairperson Kondie Msungama described Moyale, who are among the remaining three opponents to visit Kamuzu Stadium, as a real threat to their title aspirations.
“Considering that teams are coming tough on us, our approach would be aggressive. Tigers tend to finish in the top-four; hence, they too have much to fight for. If they accelerate, we will also accelerate, but if they want us to have fun on the park; we will play and excite our fans,” Msungama said.
Bullets striker Frazer Menyani will be expected to continue his new scoring form against his former employers who have Peter Katsonga and Bright Munthali as scoring machines.
