They have very swift players whom we intend to neutralise and I will be happy if the players employ a different approach to the game as this will be a litmus test for us."

"Though we respect the Cranes we are going to the match with an open mind knowing that we can also emerge as the champions since our rivalry has been there for a long time and we intend to put the records straight this time round," the soft spoken Nandwa told supersport.com.
