Eguma: Dolphins’ll Be Ready For Prime

Prime FC have proved to be the giant killers of the Federation Cup and have won every game they have played so far via penalties.
But Dolphins, who made a giant killing run in 2001 to win the Cup as a 2nd division side will not underrate the underdogs or focus on penalty shootouts ahead of the game.
Prime have won every single game they have played in the competition via penalties, but coach, Stanley Eguma says that will not be his focus
“I will prepare for the game. I will prepare for all aspects and hope to win in regulation time, but if the game goes into penalties I will also be prepared for that too,” Eguma said.
The last time Dolphins won the Federation Cup in 2007, four games were won via penalty Shootouts.
Against FC Katsina, Dolphins won via penalties in the Round of 32; against Enyimba in the quarter final in Ilorin, Dolphins won via shootouts; against Sharks in the semi final in Owerri, Dolphins progressed after full time ended 2-2 and in the final in Lagos against Rangers, Dolphins won via penalties after full time ended 1-1.
However, the last time a Dolphins game went to shootout in the Federation Cup was in 2013 against Akwa Starlets in the Round of 64 and Dolphins lost that one.
