Prime FC unafraid



Prime FC striker, Babatunde Kazeem has said his side are poised to re-enact the 2012 Federation Cup feat in the coming season.

The NNL side shocked bookmakers as they bulldozed their way to win bronze at the annual football showpiece. The Osogbo-based side shoved aside NPL giants, Wikki Tourists, Enugu Rangers, Enyimba and Kano Pillars en route to finishing the Cup as third best.

Kazeem said they are determined to prove to doubters that their performance in the outgoing year was not a fluke.

"Considering the feat we achieved at the 2012 Federation Cup more is expected from us at the sub-region, league and 2013 Federation Cup.

"We've psyched ourselves to prove once more that the Federation Cup feat was not a fluke. We're ready to play for the team.

"The spirit among my teammates is high, and we're going for a repeat performance not only in the Cup competition but also the league and Wafu Cup," said the former Julius Berger forward to supersport.com.

The former Golden Eaglets' player said life is coming back to the camp of the hitherto cash-strapped side.

"We resumed officially for the new season on Monday as the management paid us our October salary with a promise to pay off the other two months, signing-on fees and match bonuses this week.

"Things are looking up though we're still cautiously waiting to see the fulfilment of the promises before we totally commit ourselves. But things are better right now than previously," the former Ebonyi Angels' hit man said.
