“We are looking forward to maintaining our position at the top of the conference ladder.”
Mt Hagen will be determined to pick up from where they left off when they beat Simbu Angra 3–2.

“I have faith in Stanley Sabao, Denny Sombe and Basa Zuneka to get us the a positive result,” he said.
“I know Kagua Erave will come out hard but we will put up a strong challenge.”
