Western Dynamites Coach Tobokani King said his boys are all ready and fit for the tournament despite the few who he revealed have minor injuries. The coach has however said the affected players will be ready before match day.

“We have talented and young energetic players in our team who can run full 90 minutes and can score more than 3 goals per game, something that gives us an upper hand against our opponents,” he said.

King said they will use a home ground advantage and the fan bases in Maun to make sure they play to their best come Saturday. Efforts to get comment from Mohembo United of Shakawe Stream was not successful as their phones were not going through.
