Precious Sambani, and Lanjesi Nkhoma have been ruled out of the FDH Bank Cup final game against Nyasa Big Bullets Reserve on Sunday.
The Head Coach for the Senior team confirmed the development during the press briefing in Blantyre on Friday saying the two are still having some knocks.
Precious Sambani was withdrawn beside half-time with a knee injury in a game that Bullets were held by Blue Eagls at Kamuzu Stadium last weekend while Lanjesi Nkhoma has only played one game of the team’s last 4 fixtures.
“We had Precious Sambani who was having a knock the game we played Blue Eagles and he didn’t play on Wednesday [against Sable Farming]. Today, he went outside and was just jogging around and he didn’t take part. We also have Lanjesi Nkhoma who hasn’t been feeling well,” said the coach.
Apart from the two, The Zimbabwean also disclosed that Gomezgani Chirwa who missed the 5-1 win over Sable Farming on Wednesday is also battling for his fitness as he failed to finish the training today.
“We have Gomezgani Chirwa who had a knock and came back, but today he picked up a knock again, had to be taken out, and will be waiting to hear from our doctors,” added the tactician.
Chimwemwe Idana and Patrick Mwaungulu were rested during the midweek Fixture against Sable Farming and the tactician confirmed that they are available for selection ahead of the much-anticipated finals.
“We have Chimwemwe Idana [and Patrick Mwaungulu] whom we rested during the midweek game and now they are back, so too with Richard Chimbamba who trained today. We will see tomorrow how they will fare and if they are ready, we will bring them back [for selection on Sunday], explained the Coach.
This is for the first time for Pasuwa to and Nyasa Big Bullets to reach the finals of the FDH Bank Cup as they beaten by Silver Strikers last season in the quarterfinals.
