The log leaders will face Tigers at 19:00 in what is expected to be a thrilling encounter at the Sam Nujoma Stadium.
Shipanga said the clash against the Shandumbala outfit will be tough, but they want to collect much-needed points and will pull out all the stops.
“It is going to be a crucial encounter but the players are motivated, as they have always been, to stay at the top. Tigers knocked us out of the Standard Bank Top 8 Cup, so we are looking to take revenge tonight,” said Shipanga.
Tigers coach Peter 'Oubaas' Mokwena said they are going all out to win the match.
“We have prepared well for the match. We know BA are desperate for a win and so are we.
“We need the points and no one wants to lose out, but I don't want to put a lot of pressure on my players. As much as this is a crucial match, we will take it one match at a time,” added Mokwena.
