Olamilekan Gabriel says his MFM FC will go all out against Shooting Stars when they meet in the Southwest Derby semi-final clash in the Ogunjobi Gold Cup on Thursday at the FC Ebedei Stadium.

This will be the first meeting of both teams in the country’s prestigious pre-season tournament for teams from the three tiers of the domestic leagues.

The Olukoya Boys who finished second in Group A behind Remo Stars set eyes on another final if they go past the Oluyole Warriors.

Recall the first time they made it to the final in 2016, the Olukoya Boys lost 4-3 on spot-kicks to Lobi Stars at the Dipo Dina Stadium, Ijebu-Ode.

Speaking ahead of the game, “This is a semi-final and a few things are at stake. I except a different ball game against 3SC, as they will come out strong.

“Am optimistic that my lads will be clinical, as we have shown them the few mistakes they made in the game against Remo Stars. I expect nothing short of victory from them as the Oluyole Warriors are not invincible.”

As regards the loss to Remo Stars, “It was a match we could have taken a point from, we should have won it in the first half of the lads had taken the half-chances that came their way.

“Mind you, Remo Stars were not the better side in the meeting of the two Southwest Derby teams. It’s a lesson learnt and that will help the coaching crew fine-tune the squad as we are still going to lock horns against them when the season kicks off.”
