TNM Super League leaders Mighty Wanderers arrive in the Capital City with one strong message that they are not ready to let go their lead ahead of two tricky assignments against Civo today and Kamuzu Barracks tomorrow.
It is not known whether influential skipper Joseph Kamwendo would be part of the team after reports emerged that would return in time from South Africa to be part of the league leaders' squad.
Last week, Wanderers laboured to 1-0 victory over Mafco at Kalulu Stadium in Nchalo and many supporters felt the absence of nimble footed Kamwendo had a negative effect on the team.
But Wanderers coach Franco Ndawa thinks otherwise and says the team has the quality and quantity to compensate for Joseph Kamwendo's absence.
"With or without Kamwendo we can do well," he said. "We know we can't replace him but we have other equally good players that can do the same job in another way.
"We are emphasising that we should win out of team work and not individual brilliance. God willing we will win the two games."
Ndawa will welcome back midfield workhorse Nafe Misasa, who missed last weekend's game because he was serving one game suspension having accumulated two yellow cards.
Other potential match winners for Wanderers are Diverson Chilemba, Gerald Phiri Jnr. and the in-form Alfred Manyozo Jnr.
Civo coach Alex Masanjala said it would be a difficult game.
"Each team is fighting for points to survive in the league. We just need to be composed and take the game to them. We are playing at home so we must have an upper hand," he said.
Forwards Martin Masoatheka and Lusekero Mwathengere have been enjoying rich vein of form lately and they would be pose a threat to Foster Namwera's led defence.
In another interesting game, Leo Mpulula's Azam Tigers will face Blantyre United at Kalulu Stadium in Nchalo. Ever since Mpulula left Blantyre United, he has been finding it difficult to overcome his former side.
Blantyre United mentor Elia Kananji has promised an attacking minded game as his charges seek to move up the table
