Despite the recent dominance in this fixture, Regina Mogolola is not taking the opponents for granted.

“Every game is important to us and claiming maximum points is always our objective before every fixture. Although we regularly get the better of our visitors, they are never easy games. Every team that plays against us tend to showcase their best because they are battling against the champions. Yes we beat them at the start of the season, but they have improved significantly since that loss. They are a formidable opponent, and we are not going to rest on the good record we have against them,” the defender stated. 

Ma-Indies have enjoyed a dominant season and are placed sixth on the Hollywoodbets Super League standings. They have bagged 10 wins in 19 games and played out a 2-2 home draw against Vasco da Gama last time out.
