Led by their captain, Maxwell Ebonga, the Hippos are optimistic that with just four points away from the table leaders, Kobs, they can easily use today’s game to defeat them and improve their chances of winning the title.

Ebonga says that they have the advantage of playing such a decisive game on their pitch, whose texture they are comfortable with.   

//Cue in: “always if you’re…

Cue out…us beating them,”. 

The Hippos head coach, Robert Seguya says that every game irrespective of the outcome has been a learning experience for the boys.

He is optimistic that they can capitalize on such lessons to defeat the Kobs.
