Big Bullets will come up against Dyanamos FC of Zimbabwe in the Nyasa Challenge Cup at Kamuzu Stadium on Saturday afternoon before another clash at Civo Stadium 24 hours later.
This will be the first game for newly appointed coach Franco Ndawa who is expected to name a strong squad against the visitors.
New players are also expected to make their debuts for the league champions.
Speaking to the media on Friday, Ndawa said his charges are ready for the massive showdown.
“I have a strong squad capable of destroying Dynamos FC. This will be a good platform for me to start on a very good note with my new club.
“I will field a very strong squad so as to give all Bullets fans a first win in the 2016. The boys are ready for the showdown,” he said.
Bullets have assembled a strong squad, with Muhamad Sulumba, John Lanjesi, Emmanuel Zoya, Enerst Kakhobwe and Amadu Makawa all joining the club in the on-going transfer market.
As part of their sponsorship deal with Nyasa Manufacturing Company, Bullets will play the Zimbabwean giants twice in Blantyre and Lilongwe respectively.
The sponsorship deal is worth K0.5 billion (K100 million per season) for five years.
