“The coaches are doing their best; the players too, but this time around we must be up and doing to avoid last season’s scenario when the battled for safety up till the last couple of games to end the season”.
“The two scoreless home draws against Rangers Int’l and Lobi Stars have no doubts affected our standing on the group ‘B’ log, but not withstanding, we must get back to winning ways, starting from the mid-week game”.
