Victoria United will face Best Stars this Sunday, March 7 knowing it is a must not lose encounter for them in their chances of reaching the mini interpool this year.
Opopo heads into this game after picking up a defeat against option Sports on matchday one. For Best Stars, they were exempted as just three teams are placed in group D.
Victoria United who brought in Coach Njoku Barnabas this year faltered at the game against Option Sport. OPOPO had a slender 1-0 lost to Option, a result that does not tell the whole details about the match.
The issue of licenses for players was one of the worries Victoria United had in the first game as did some other teams in the championship. The worries from the clubs were looked at in January as a window was opened for these clubs to do their licenses.
“We are going to take game after game. For Best Stars, it is a team we already have an idea of how they play as we have played them already during our preparatory matches. From what I am seeing from my guys in training I am very optimistic that we are going to have a good game,” Coach Barnabas told kick442.com back in December last year.
In the same interview last year, Kingsley Tabot, captain of Victoria United FC told kick442.com: “So far so good we have been preparing for the championship. Due to our preparations, our goal is to go beyond the national interpool and into the Elite 2 level. We have tried in previous editions but we have not been able but with the level of preparedness with the new coach, and management, we believe we can bring that much elusive ticket to the Elite Two.”
For Best Stars, they will hope to get off on a winning way when they face Victoria United. The team recently took part in the first phase preliminary round of the Cup of Cameroon in the South West region. Coach Djeufack Saturin and his boys defeated Prisons FC 4-3 on penalties to go to the next round.
For the unofficial classification in Pool D
Option Sports 3 points (+1 goal)
Victoria United 0 point (-1 goal)
Best Stars 0 point (-1 game)
It should be noted that Option Sports is on standby on matchday two and will return on matchday three against Best Stars.
