Rivers United are good side because they have started preparation for a very long time but I can tell you that our coach Ladan Bosso have done a great job in our team in ensuring that we are in shape for the match,” Mathias disclosed to SportingLife.
He added: “It is the first game of the season and it is going to be difficult for both sides. It is going to be nervous game because everybody will want to win the first game of the season. There is much awareness for the league matches now and we are all set for it. We have a great team with young and experienced players. I hope that we will get something from the match in Port Harcourt.”
