Gasogi United will be eyeing all the three points when they face Esperance on Saturday afternoon at Mumena Stadium as they seek to keep hold of the pole position in Group A of the 2018/2019 second division league.

Marcel Lomami’s side are flying high atop Group A table with 26 points, one ahead of second-place Vision FC who take on Aspor.

“It is going to be a tough match on both sides, especially us who will be the visitors, but my boys are up for the challenge. We want the three points and end the league’s first-leg on a high,” said Lomami.

The former Rayon Sports assistant coach further appealed to his players to ‘be cautious’ in their defending and ‘highly efficient’ in the attack.
