The Ilorin based outfit are without a win their last four matches. They lost 4-2 last time out at home against Sunshine Stars.

We must finish the season on a high and try to do well in Federation Cup because we need to get back to continental football next season.

“Victory against MFM FC is a moral booster for us. We are so motivated and that every game would now be played like a final. We must achieve our set goal for this season. We are confident of getting a positive result ‎ against ABS FC on sunday”, the former Prime FC of Osogbo divulged.
