Goalkeeper Itodo Akor believes that all Yobe Desert Stars need in order to turn their bad form in the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) is a win on Wednesday July 18th against Heartland.
The Damaturu Stars are currently 19th on the NPFL log on 28 points approaching Week 25, but Itodo believes that in hosting the Naze Millionaires, there is an opportunity to reverse the situation.
“A win over Heartland would put us in the fight with many other teams,” he enthused to Futbalgalore.com.
“The message is what it is, because if we win on Wednesday then we are back in the mix. We will have 31 points and we would be in the fight against the others. That is the target and our hope.
“We are eager to get the 9th win of the season and more so in front of our fans, who deserve it. We have to win, whilst at home we always have to win – this week and next. The pressure, in this sense, is always the same. Winning, will return that motivation again and it will return everything back to normal.”
