It will be a tough game but football at times is controlled by luck. Sometimes you don’t get what you deserve.
We get lots of goal scoring opportunities but we always fail to convert. All we need to give is total commitment and effort and fight till the end.
The morale of the team is high and your support in numbers and vocally will give them a massive boost because together and united,nothing is impossible..”
