“There are nine games left to complete our season and we are treating each game like a cup final,” said Nicolaou.

Nicolaou added that his team are ready and looking forward to the match as they look to build on their four point lead at the summit of the table.

“The preparations, for the upcoming game have gone very well,” added Nicolaou.

“The team is motivated and raring to go, we are confident that we will do well and we are looking forward to the match.”
