Head coach Moses Toatar told Star Sports that they are preparing for their first game and will be looking for a win to put them in pool position while waiting for Western United on Thursday.
He said, the boys are aware of the fact that this year will be tough for them and the only thing they have is to do their best.
“We have been preparing well ahead for our first game and we will be looking for a win to put us in pool position,” he said.
Toata said one of the setbacks in their preparation was they will miss the service of Matson Feni who unfortunately will return home due to passing away of his father.
But despite that the boys are looking forward for their tomorrow’s game.
