However, there are unconfirmed reports are indicating that Wanderers travelling squad might be reduced as most of their players are reporting sick from flue and sore throats.

Missing firing by Wanderers forwards was the order of the day and they need to improve on it if they are to beat Hammers.

The game is worth the billing as both side will be aiming at collecting maximum points in order to improve the league standing as it was dented last weekend after defeats.

Due to commitment of Mzuzu Stadium on Sunday, the game involving Moyale and Bullets has been shifted to Monday.
