Defender Lucky Malata and forwards Peter Wadabwa and Jaffali Chande resumed training on Tuesday after missing a number of games due to injuries and illness.


Team Doctor Samuel Matukuta told the Club’s official website that the players responded well to treatment and will be available for selection.


“Malata is back in full training. He has responded well to the treatment and we are optimistic that he will go through training without a glitch… Chande is also back as well as Wadabwa.


“Wadabwa missed the Karonga and central region trips due to illness, but he has since recovered and is taking part in full training,” Matukuta is quoted as saying.

Likewise, Bullets have welcomed back midfield Dalitso Sailesi who terminated his five-year deal with Zambian MTN Premier League outfit, Lusaka Dynamos for its failure to pay him dues amounting K7.5 million. Sailesi has been cleared, nearly two months after terminating his contract.
