TNM Super League leaders, Be Forward Wanderers, will seek to maintain their perfect run in the league when they visit Bingu National Stadium for a date against Nyasa Big Bullets in what promises to be a game of sparks.
The Nomads, who edged Blue Eagles 1-0 in their previous league fixture, command the elite league with 28 points and is the second consistent squad after Silver Strikers in the league with nine wins, 1 draw and one loss.
The encounter will be more competitive as Bullets coach Elijah Kananji searches for revenge on the Nomads after he lost to them 5-1 in the Bus Ipite Bonanza in their previous meetings.
Kananji said they are ready for the showdown.
“Wanderers are in top form but we have devised a strategy on how to handle them and I am confident that we will do well,” Kananji said.
On his part, Nomads Coach, Yasin Osman, was cautious, saying: “Bullets have always had an edge over us in league matches and the scales are tipped in their favour. Secondly, every team now would like to beat us because of our good run. So, we are anticipating a very tough game.”
