Prime plot Insurance fall



Prime FC forward, Babatunde Kazeem is confident his side will undo Bendel Insurance in Saturday's NNL Matchday 3 at the Ogbemudia Stadium, Benin City.

The Osogbo-based side recorded an emphatic 2-0 win against Oturkpo-based side, Apa United on Matchday 2 to head to the tricky tie in Benin.

Kazeem, who already envisages a difficult game in Benin, said his side are determined to grab their season's first away points.

"We put everything right to win the first road trip to Gabros FC to no avail, we're going to Benin against Insurance to try our luck to win in Benin.

"Of course, our mission is not for jamboree or sight-seeing but for the three points or worst case a point.

"I'll try to score as I did against Apa United but the most important thing for us is the team's victory irrespective of who scores.

"I'm not foreseeing a cheap game rather a difficult one. Insurance are traditional side, one of the best in the land and whose place actually is at the Premier League.

"Playing against such a big side is enough challenge for one to give his best. We're inspired by the mere fact that we're drawn against them. That's the tonic we need to overcome their assault," said the former Julius Berger hitman to supersport.com.

Unconfirmed report said Osun State government has taken over the running of the 2012 Federation Cup bronze winners from the hitherto financiers, Osogbo local government.

Prime will represent Nigeria at the sub-regional football competition, Wafu.
