Quotes: Highlander’s Hussein Behery

On the importance of getting 3 points this weekend with the title race so close…

“The battle for top 2 is getting closer and closer every week, and picking up 3 points from Tss rovers is a must.”

On the motivation getting a result against TSS could give this group…

“Beating a team like TSS rovers this weekend would give us a huge amount of motivation. Not only because it’s a home game, but also because of how strong they are. They have been having a very good season and have been undefeated so far. So, giving them their first defeat would be huge for our team morale.”

On what the team is expecting from TSS…

“I’m expecting some very talented players that will give us a hard fight, and expecting Sunday to be the hardest game for us yet.”

Player to watch: Koby Greaves 

The Victoria native has been a crucial part of this Highlanders team this season, playing the role of playmaker for the Highlanders. Koby’s technical ability and vision is instrumental in the Highlanders possession and attacking play. A nightmare to play against, Koby rarely gives the ball away and often has defenders chasing shadows with impeccable distribution. A player to watch this weekend, and all season long!
