Barry Myers, coach of the Pele side in an invited comment said: “We are not underestimating any one. We are expecting a good game because they play good football and are a formidable side and the crowd will get their money’s worth.

“We are going out there to win because we are looking to be at the top of the table at the end of the competition and not just to qualify,” added Myers.

“We see every game as an opportunity to put the team in a better position in terms of sponsorship and recognition and nothing other than a win is expected” said Millington.
