The search for the much needed point for Nyasa Big Bullets will start tomorrow at Balaka Stadium when they play relegation threatened Red Lions, who could be relegated if they lose.
The Blantyre giants will win their 14th Super League title if they manage to beat the ‘hungry lions’ at their backyard, or manage to collect a point.
Bullets team manager, James Chilapondwa, says he is sure his team will beat the Reds in an effort to bounce back from their recent poor run and put a smile back on their supporters, but failed to belittle their opponents.
“We really have a tough task this weekend as you know Red Lions is also fighting hard to remain in the league, and we haven’t also done well in our previous games. Our supporters are bitter for our recent poor form so we want to win the game to make sure they are happy at the end of the day.
“Honestly it will be a tough game since each one of us wants to get a good result from the game. But we have hope that the players are going to perform since they are also concerned about the poor form, as I have seen in training the focus is really there,” he confirmed to a leading local radio station.
Bullets are remaining with three games to wrap-up their season, and after a game against the Reds they will play Silver Strikers next week on Wednesday, then finish with Civil Sporting Club.
Meanwhile, the Reds are camping at unknown place for the game, and they are on the 14th position in the standings with 33 points in 29 games, and could be the second Army team to be relegated alongside MAFCO who already waved goodbye to the topflight.
