Be Forward Wanderers have been boosted ahead of Saturday’s Blantyre derby, as two of their key players Yamikani Chester and Ted Sumani have returned to full fitness, while Harry Nyirenda is not far off.
Chester sustained an injury during their FAM Charity Shield match against Silver Strikers, while Sumani got injured during pre-season friendlies, but passed fitness test last week and have returned to training.
Another player who has returned to light training is Misheck Bottomani, and Wanderers team doctor Samuel Matukuta had some positive news to report.
“Botomani is 90% back. He should be taking part in proper training for the next week. Good news is that we have Chester and Sumani back from injuries,” confirmed Matukuta on Monday.
However, the Nomads have defender Harry Nyirenda sidelined for some weeks due to an ankle injury he suistained during their pre-season friendly against Dedza Young Soccer.
“Nyirenda is still out but the good news is that he is recovering so fast that he should be okay in a few weeks.
Wanderers head into preparation for the encounter with Bullets in third place on the TNM Super League log – a point behind Red Lions who are on the summit table with 7 points and they tally points with their Blantyre rivals.
