And that's what we have taken into the Lagos FA cup and presently we are among the best four teams in Lagos State and we know that we have a big task ahead of us to qualify for the finals but i can tell you confidently that with positive mindset of the players and the coaching staff Olukoya boys are beatable and we can qualify for the finals because we are the under dogs and they have so much pressure on them facing our team.
