“The last time we met was at Ife and I defeated them 1-0, the least they had against was a draw.
“The boys were complacent and they calculated the points that even we lose, we’ve qualified already and we will still top the group.
“We’ll prepare very well and except from this match, we’ve been winning every game.”
