There is a setback to Flames ahead of their Saturday's African Cup of Nations third round Qualifiers encounter away to Benin as they will miss the services of three South African based foreign players.

The two Celtic players, hit man Gabadihno Mhango and right back Limbikani Mzava have not been released by their club while Atusaye Nyondo failed to make the trip as his passport is with the South African government working on his work permit.

Instead, coach Young Chimodzi has roped in Kamuzu Barracks duo of Pililani Makupe and Kelvin Hanganda including Big Bullets left back, Yamikani Fodya to replace them.

The Flames will also have to do it without their inspirational midfielder, Robert Ng'ambi, who is nursing an injury.

However, Chimodzi stressed that there is no need to press the panic button emphasizing that he has enough arsenal to scorch Benin.

Chimodzi is likely banking his hopes on experienced striker Chiukepo Msowoya, inspirational Joseph Kamwendo and Robin Ngalande .

On Tuesday, the Flames drew 0 -0 against Uganda in a friendly match in Kampala.
