“We know the importance of this match, as anything less than three points will throw us into relegation, ” he said.
“I am not taking chance in this game so also my teammates. We know what is at stake. We have resolved among ourselves to go for the maximum points regardless of our opponents promotion ambition.”
Gateway FC is third spot on the Bet9ja Nigeria National group B2 table with 23 points from 14 matches while Bayelsa United are 7th with 17 points from the same number of matches played.
