THE Enag Mioks are determined to win their forth away game against Hela Wigmen in Mendi on Sunday.

Victory in Mendi will give the Engans the confidence that they can win away from home consistently – something every side in the competition has struggled with.

 They will need it because the Joe Keviame Oval does not sound as intimidating as the Kalabond Oval.

After belting Mendi Muruks,Gulf Isapea and Mt Hagen Eagles in venues away from their own Aipus oval which they were forced to abandoned as a result of spectator violence, the Engan team has trained hard this week under  the close eyes of new trainer and former Mioks hard-running forward Jonah McKay to cause an upset against their traditional Hela brothers.

 Star David Loko said after training yesterday they would treat Sunday’s game in Mendi as a finals match and play accordingly with the urgency and intensity required for a playoff game.
