“We will come out strong to attack from the blast of the whistle to ensure we claim the whole three points at stake.

“We must assert ourselves strongly to be on the right path towards achieving our lofty dreams for the on-going season.
“And the path to send the right signal across to other top-flights is a convincing victory against Gombe United so that we can comfortably take it up from there to other matches on the calendar,” said the former Heartland and Warri Wolves goal poacher to supersport.com.
