Sierra Leone-born winger Tejan Brima has revealed he is ‘excited’ ahead of Lynx‘s Gibraltar Rock Cup quarter-final against holders Lincoln Red Imps on Saturday.
The 2023 Rock Cup quarter-finals will take place on the 18th and 19th of February with four intriguing ties.
Brima, 23, who signed for Lynx in July, has been a great addition and has featured in their last twenty matches in all competitions for the Gibraltar top-tier side.
“On Saturday, we are playing against one of the best teams in Gibraltar in the Rock Cup quarter-final. They are the defending Cup champions as well, It’s going to be a difficult game, but we are aiming to go all the way,” Brima told FSL News.
He added, “Our focus is mainly on the Cup because our Championship position is a bit difficult. We obviously want to do well in this season’s cup competition,”
“This is my second quarter-final in this competition. Hopefully, this time will be victorious. No easy match when it comes to a knockout match in any competition. However, we have to be brave to play against a difficult opposition on Saturday.”
Brima and his teammates will face St. Joseph’s on Wednesday in their Championship tie before Saturdays’s Cup game.
They won 2-0 in their last meeting against Glacis United at the Gibraltar Victoria Stadium on the 4th of February.
The Rock Cup winner will book a place to represent Gibraltar in the Europa League. The Rock Cup is open to all Gibraltar Football Association club members and is played on a straight knock-out basis.
In 2014 UEFA president Michel Platini presented the trophy to the winners.
