“We have played them before, and beat them at home. We know this will be a different game, because a lot of thing is at stake.


“But we are ready to fight for the points, it’s in our hands, and we can’t allow it to slip up. ” He said.

The match will be played at Teslim Balogun Stadium this Tuesday.
