Malawi: Bns to Host Wanderers, Silver in Fisd Final

Blantyre — All roads will on December 26 lead to Bingu National Stadium in Lilongwe where the two giants, Be Forward Wanderers and Silver Strikers will tussle with each other in the Foundation for Irrigation Sustainable Development (FISD) Challenge Cup Finals.

For the Nomads to reach this far, they ousted Moyale Barracks 2-1, while the Central Bankers showed Nyasa Big Bullets the exit door with a 2-0 victory.

In an interview, Be Forward Wanderers Team Manager, Steve Madeira told Malawi News Agency on Tuesday that he was confident of his team grabbing this year's FISD silverware.

"We are keeping our momentum because we are set to winning as we have two games to play before the final game, so the league game will help us prepare and we are equally ready," said Madeira.

However, he conceded that Silver strikers was a very good team with a sound set up, therefore need for the team to prepare thoroughly. "If we don't win this one it will be a total disaster".

Silver Strikers Assistant Coach, Peter Shoes N'gangila said they are all looking forward to the finals.

"Wanderers are a good team and we respect them but don't fear them. All our players are ready for the show down," said N'gangila.

The last time the two teams met in a final match was in the Airtel Top 8 two years ago at the Bingu National Stadium when the Bankers defeated Nomads 8-9 in post-match penalties.
