Bankroller of Bekwai based club New Edubiase is very confident his side will progress to the round of 16 after being paired with former Champions Medeama SC.
The former Premier League campaigners who are also former champions of the competition believe the experience of playing in the league will come to bear when they square up in the FA Cup.
Abdul Salam Yakubu explains they have played a couple of games with Medeama and know them well enough to cause an upset.
“This is the FA Cup. It’s one of our best competitions, we’ve won it before and this time too we are doing well. Meadeama is not an easy team but we have surprised them before at the T&A Park so we can do it again,” he told Happy FM.
“We won’t look at them as a premier side and get intimidated. When we meet all the time it’s been very feisty and so we will prepare well to face them.”
New Edubiase were winners of the competition in 2012.
