"We are ready for the game and hopefully we will give the supporters something to smile after the game”, the prolific attacker stressed.
Shafiu Mumuni bagged a hat-trick in the side’s last match against Akonangui FC and will be hoping to have a good day when he steps onto the pitch to spearhead his team’s attack against RS Bekane.
