Having defeated Ben Francis Knockout champions Clarendon College in last weekend's quarter-finals, surprise team Calabar will enter today's semis in the ISSA/Flow Super Cup against St Elizabeth Technical High oozing in confidence.

The Red Hills road-based Calabar edged Clarendon 4-3 in the quarter-finals to continue what has been a largely positive campaign for the Lions.

Ligyasu Simms, head coach at Calabar, said that his team would be looking to carry over the momentum from last week's game into today's match against STETHS at Sabina Park.

"Every game is like a final for us because it is the only way that we can win silverware, and so we are taking this competition very seriously," said Simms.

"We are taking this game very seriously, like a final, so we are really going there to play some good football," he said.

"Our team is always confident no matter who we go against. We respect teams, but we don't fear teams, and so we plan to do what we have been doing, which is to play some good football and score some goals," Simms said.

He added that his players aware of what is at stake, and so they are very focused on the task ahead.

"We are under pressure because I am going to tell my boys to go out there and enjoy themselves and play to the best of their abilities, and the rest will be history," said Simms.
