Tornadoes to flatten Supreme Court



Niger Tornadoes coach, Hamza Azeez has said his side are not worried confronting Nigeria National League (NNL) Division A newcomers, Supreme Court FC in the opening game of the 2013/14 season.

Tornadoes will host the Abuja-based side at the Bako Kontagora Memorial Stadium, Minna on Saturday.

Azeez said though his side do not have detailed information about the visitors they will descend heavily on them with the aim of pocketing the maximum points at stake.

"We quite appreciate the fact that there are no underdogs in football so we'll approach the encounter same way we would against any known top rated side.

"Our main concern is to pocket the three points, the players are anxiously waiting for the match day to descend on them with their full weights.

"We felt completely taken aback when the kickoff date was moved further though we quickly adjusted our programme believing it's in the best interest of the league as we've finalised all arrangements for the season.

"So we're ready to host Supreme Court FC on Saturday and they'll be sure not to receive any mercy from our wards as we'll be bombarding them from start to finish," Azeez said to supersport.com.

Azeez assured his side will contest for the promotion tickets available in the NNL Division A.

"We're still ruing the missed chances to return to the elite league last season we won't want a repeat this term.

"We've done our home work well believing that everything will work out perfectly to ensure we return to the Premier League at the end of the season," Azeez enthused.
