BINAN--Davao makes a return to PFL action on Sunday night as the club travels to the Binan Football Stadium to battle Stallion Laguna.

Davao last played on March 4 with a 2-2 draw versus Iloilo in Tagum, but Coach Marlon Maro insisted during the pre-match press conference on Saturday at the Alonte Sports Arena that his club will not enter the field in the 4 p.m. match rusty despite the month-long hiatus from club play.

"It's not a 'month-off' of non-active training because [of] some players that were called up by [the] Azkals," said Maro.

He also thought the tutelage of Coach Thomas Dooley in the past month already suffices the match fitness his key players needs.

"I think we were able to train nine days prior to the match," said Maro.
