“Prime are good side and the have ex-Under 20 assistant coach (Abimbola Samuel), I believe they are a good side but, in football sometimes you win, sometimes you draw and sometimes you lose, that we picked point against Prime does not mean they are not a good side, they are even one of the teams I am tipping that will gain promotion to the Premier League,” he said.
