Mighty Mukuru Wanderers FC


Head Coach Mark Harrison speaks to Club Media ahead of the super league return against Kamuzu Barracks FC at Kamuzu Stadium on Wednesday.

The Nomads were on a super league action break following their contribution of five players to the senior national side that faced Guinea at Bingu National Stadium on Saturday.

On the level of preparedness

We are well prepared. We have got our national team players back on Monday morning. Of course two days together is not ideal but we will get along with it. The boys are looking sharp in training and we will see if they can transfer that into the game tomorrow [Wednesday].

On whether the league is a four horse race

I guess it is at this point in time. The gap is opened a little bit and it is going to be interesting because there is so much football to play in a short period of time. We have four competitions and depending how far ourselves, Bullets, Silver and Chitipa to a degree going the competitions could dictate who comes out on top of the league because of the range of the games. You know we have a semifinal to play and if we win that we have a final to play. You have got Airtel starting next week and you have got Castel Cup to still come through. And if you go all the way in these competitions, you are banking up games your way. And if you look at the weeks left in the season and how many games could be played, they are out of time. I mean you got to consider also in November there are two world cup qualifiers. And you know how national team operates, FAM wants players to camp weeks in advance which stops the games again. The concern now is how many games we shall be playing in a week. The way this looks now, if we will go to the final of the FDH and push through Castel Cup to the last semifinal or final even Airtel, you know I don’t see other games can be played. It’s just poor organization in my opinion. But anyway, that’s what it is and we have to deal with it as it comes I guess. But as I said, Chitipa have got the less games out of all of us. They are not in the top 8 and they are out of FDH Bank Cup. They only have Castel Cup and the league to compete with. And they have already played 2 or three games more than us and so they got less games. So we will have to see and work out. We have to look at the players on the training ground, may be rotate the players and rest some of them where we can.

On suspension and injuries

Zlatan Chiukepo Msowoya Suspended

We have Zlatan [Chiukepo Msowoya] who is suspended and we still got Mphatso [Kamanga] who is injured. Gabs [Miracle Gabeya] is now fit, he started training on Monday. He is likely going to be on the bench and whether he will take part in the game is unlikely. I need to get him through some more trainings sessions before he actually starts playing again to get his fitness levels back.<

The Nomads lost 0-1 to Kamuzu Barracks at Kasungu Stadium in the first round of TNM Super League and they will be looking forward to collect maximum points this time around. The visitors lie 6th in the standings having played 20 games and bagging 28 points. On the other hand, the hosts have 36 points from 19 games and are currently on position three on the log table. Let’s see who gets maximum points on Wednesday as Referee Zebron Lengani summons the two sides from 2:30pm at Kamuzu Stadium.
