“It is going to be a tough game for us because the Alimosho Super Four would be tougher than the Alimosho Football Coaches League that we just concluded. But let us sound a note of warning to our opponents that we are not only ready, but we want to win the Super Four League.
"We have suffered a lot to qualify for Super Four finals and we cannot afford to take any anything for granted at this crucial stage of this competition,” said Babatunde who vowed to be at his best in all matches.
In his swift reaction, Peculiar FC coach, Ahotin Anthony admitted that their match against Samjason FC would be tough but noted that his boys are in good frame of mind to shock Samjason FC again.
