"Medeama are not an easy side since they've also won the competition twice but we have surprised them before at the T&A Park so we can repeat it this time around.

“We won’t regard them as a premier side and get intimidated since we're now in the second-tier. Whenever we meet the fixtures are very tough therefore we will prepare well to face them and hopefully we will achieve another surprises," he added.
