Bombers' last home victory over Calgary took place back in 2009, and now Winnipeggers are going to interrupt this unsuccessful series.
Already three coaches have changed since then and a new stadium was built. The victory over the leaders of the division ahead of time will ensure the Bombers hit the playoffs in the third season in a row.
Quarterback Nichols made a statement before the match. He never beat Calgary in his career but now he does not think about it. He considers Stampeders one of the best teams in the league of the last decade but he believes in the success of his team.
Winnipeg team is a favorite of many after four wins in a row, while Calgary has lost two last games. Nichols noted that he considers his team a favorite in any game. According to him, it will be a match between two excellent teams, in which one mistake can decide the fate of the game.
Stamps approaches the match with a lot of injured players but this does not make them much weaker, according to Andrew Harris. The head coach O’Shea noted the depth of the squad of the opponent and the fact that the players who go to replace the main ones are also very well prepared.
This game will confront the two strongest league offence lines but Jeffcoat, who returns after 6 missed games, is called to stop the opponent's attacks. He is very pleased that he has recovered from the injury and has a large supply of strength. Head coach O’Shea considers him the best D-lineman of the team.
Nichols also noted that the team will do everything possible to win at least one of the last two matches. Otherwise, they simply do not deserve a place in the playoffs.
