Prime aim to derail Gabros FC



Prime FC striker, Babatunde Kazeem said their NNL Matchday 1 foes, Gabros FC will not stop them from earning season's first victory.

The season's opener comes up on Sunday at the Gabros International Stadium, Nnewi.

Kazeem said the Nnewi-based side are familiar foes and will not be a difficult nut to crack.

"Though we had limited time to prepare for this encounter I think we're physically and mentally ready to confront Gabros at Nnewi on Sunday.

"We've done our home work well believing it will be good enough to see us win convincingly.

"Gabros are familiar foes, we've met severally and I think we know how to handle them.

"We want to start the season with our first road trip on a winning note which will boost our confidence going into the next matches," said the former Julius Berger hitman to supersport.com.

Kazeem said their 2012 Federation Cup exploits have made his side a target of many teams insisting they are determined to live up to the billing.

"Of course, our Federation Cup feat has made us appear like a silverfish which has no hiding place. It suits us very well as it demands from us to go the extra mile in our preparations for any encounter.

"We've resolved not to let our supporters and financiers down," he said.
