The game in Mbabane, Swaziland precedes Ghana's opening Nations Cup game against Togo but Milovan Rajevac says he wont be showing his hand in that game.
“As with every international friendly match we will have a very serious approach to the game,” he told KickOffGhana.com.
“Intentionally we did a lot of physical training here and the players will probably have heavy legs which is what we wanted at this period.
“Malawi will not show the real phase of this team. It will be more for some tactical things we will try out during the tournament.”
Despite Rajevac's stance the game against Malawi could provide vital clues to who could step in for Anthony Annan in case he does not recover and who fills the problematic left back slot.
