Stanley Eguma

“We have to show a lot of concentration in the game and the players have to display commitment.

“It is a big game for us, a make or mar game so the players have to win the game and win with (a lot of) goals.

“It (failure to score plenty of goals) has been one of our predicaments (for some time) now.

“I am very optimistic that with what I have been seeing of the boys in training, the future is bright and I am sure we will have a good game on Sunday.

“I spoke to the players about this and even they admitted that it is a problem.

“For you to win a game, you must be alive for the entire 90 minutes and even beyond.

“To score one goal does not mean a match is over; you have to consolidate and also try to defend the goal.

“We have been working on this (weakness) to see that we improve the endurance levels of the players.

“This group is very tough and every club is capitalizing on home advantage to amass maximum points.

“Goals will play a very big role in the final and decisive moments in this group.

“We have been working on scoring goals and we just appeal to Nigerians to keep supporting us.

“Yes, I will play on Sunday because the medical team has passed me fit to play.

“It is important to play in such a big game and I will be working hard to be at my best on Sunday.

“We played well in the reverse fixture in Tunis but we did not utilize our opportunities and were not careful enough in defence.

“But we have learned from those mistakes and will put things right on Sunday,”

Bernard Ovoke

“I agree with those who say I have not reached the levels I attained last season but that’s football.

“No two seasons are the same but I promise the fans that I will pick up, work very hard and achieve the objective of scoring 20 goals this season.

“We need the fans on Sunday when we face Club Africain; we need their support.

“We will beat Club Africain on Sunday because the Yakubu Gowon Stadium is our slaughter ground.

“I believe we will win a trophy this year,”

Esosa Igbinoba

“The fans can start celebrating because we will surely win by at least three goals.

“We have worked hard in training and I am sure we are going to win,”
