"We want to secure promotion to the Premier League at the end of the season, we're always prepared for our games.

"Three points against Unicem are non-negotiable, we need the three points to extend our lead at the top to 15 points.

"The game won't be easy but we're ready to give it whatever it takes to secure the three points at stake," he said to supersport.com.
