Mufulira Wanderers barely survived relegation last season and they will be hoping to avoid the relegation fight this season. They will start their campaign with a home fixture against Top 4 chasing Napsa Stars.
They were media reports earlier today of players boycotting training due to unpaid allowances at Shinde which may affect preparations but the management looks to have settled it out ahead of this very important clash.
If history is anything to go by, Wanderers are the favorites heading into this tie as they boost of a better record in the last sixth games, Winning four, drawing one and just one Loss.
Napsa, however, will not be an easy customer looking at their new acquisition and the preparation that coach Muhammad Fathi and his side have had so far.
Collins Sikombe and Danny Silanvwe are expected to partner in midfield to create chances for Burundi national team striker Laudit Mavugo who is expected to lead the attack.
Shinde is expected to be full of Mighty Mufulira Wanderers fans as they look to cheer their team to victory but need to work really hard to beat the Pensioners.
