The match which has become the talk of the town was to take place on Thursday at the Oleh Township Stadium but was shifted to Friday and moved to Warri City Stadium to enable football fans have a view of the two teams .

According to the Media Officer of Warri Wolves, Moses Etu, the match will kick off at 4pm and a winner must emerge in this crucial fixture which pitches the father with the son.

Speaking on the match, Coach Solomon Ogbeide warned his players not to underrate the junior team who are hell bent on proving a point that some of them ought to be in the senior team.

He urged his boys led by Captain Azubuike Egwuekwe to be hard on the junior boys and show them the difference between a feeder team and the senior one.

“You have to go to the pitch to prove that you are not in the senior team by accident. They also want to prove a point that they are supposed to be playing for the senior team so you have to be hard on them. Anybody who is not ready to play should chicken out because there will be no excuse. We have to beat them to convince everybody that we are ready to win the Cup and go to the Federal level to aim at winning the trophy.”

“Meanwhile, Etu has expressed happiness that the match will take place in Warri where fans will have the opportunity to see which team is better.

I am happy that we are meeting the junior team and from the look of things, the match will be explosive and exciting because the junior team has been boasting that they have what it takes to beat the senior team. I am also happy that it is going to take place at the Warri Stadium with good pitch. My prayer is that the better team should win” Etu said.
