Be Forward Wanderers team manager Steven Madeira has admitted that his side was below their best against Silver Strikers in the Airtel Top 8 Finals and that on Sunday he wants his side to turn things around as the two teams face each other in the TNM Super League at the Bingu National Stadium.
The Nomads lost the final match on post match penalties after a 0-0 result.
However, Madeira has assured that he wants a strong performance to form his players on Sunday .
The Nomads will go into this match without some of their key players like Stanely Sanudi and Jabulani Linje, who have travelled to Morocco with the Flames on national duties.
Madeira says the absence of the two players will not affect their preparations because they have a pool of players who can fit into the duo’s shoes.
“We have a huge squad and we do not think the absence of the two players will affect us in any way. Yes they are good players but we will fill their gaps,” he said.
The youthful manager also made some comments about Silver Strikers promising player Mathews Sibale.
Madeira sees Sibale as one of the biggest threats in this upcoming clash and says that the former Nsundwe United striker is “dangerous” and can surprise defenders because of his talent.
Madeira is well aware that this clash is crucial , he says a win at Bingu National Stadium would “strengthen their belief” and lift them up to maintain the grip on the summit table.
