Wikki Tourists’ Shammah Tanze has stated that they won’t be drawn into any war of words ahead of their local derby with Plateau United in Jos on Wednesday.

The Giant Elephant are making Jos’ New Stadium their home for league games this season because of the ongoing work on the Tafawa Balewa Stadium, Bauchi and they will square up against their hosts in a rescheduled league tie.

Speaking ahead of the fixture, Wikki midfielder, Tanze pointed out that they have decided not to be involved in any mind game ahead of the tie as they are looking forward to doing the talking in the pitch.

“This is no doubt a tough game and it is the reason we are keeping a low profile and not be involved in any mind game,” Tanze told Goal.

“It is a shame that we are yet to complete the renovation work on our stadium and we still have to make do with sharing the stadium with our neighbours, Plateau United. They have been good hosts to us but I will rather not dwell too much on the build-up to this game.

“We won’t be doing the talking in the media. It is a game we expect to be filled with drama and action-packed but the better side will carry the day.”
