"They may be boasting that they are visiting us with to get a win but they are going to get the shock of their lives when they step to the pitch on Sunday.

“It is unfortunate I won’t be able to play because of the groin injury that I am nursing. I tried training with it earlier this week but I aggravated it and had to go out. I actually got the injury against Sunshine Stars and I will need to rest the groin for some time before coming back.”
