Its assistant secretary Mohamad Safree Mohamad Kassim said that they are fully prepared this season. Sibu are in Group B with Sri Aman and Sarikei, while Kuching-Gedong Gators, Serian and Samarahan in Group A.

Miri, Bintulu and Mukah are in Group C. The nine teams are competing in Borneo Zone B.

Sibu defeated Sarikei 3-2 on Sept 30, and will play against Sri Aman in an away match tomorrow.

They will meet Sarikei again at Meradong Sports Complex in Bintangor, and Sri Aman at Tun Zaidi Stadium here.

In another group match, hosts Sarikei were held to a 1-1 draw by Sri Aman on Sept 16.

The nationwide LBR started in September this year and will end in May next year. The matches are played on Saturdays and teams will take a two-week rest after each game.
