“I have to praise my players for the good work they have done so far. They have made us proud all the way and I’m sure this time can do it against Dolphins. It’s going to be difficult.
“The players need to go and give their all and set the confidence up,” Ogunjobi said.
The former 3SC of Ibadan General Manager urged his players not to be complacent but remain focused so as to achieve the goal of winning the Federation Cup. “Dolphins are a very good team with quality players.
It is not easy to beat such a team but my players work extra hard to overcome them,” he added.
