Goalkeeper Uche Okafor is targeting a clean sheet and improving Abia Warriors’ league position next Wednesday against Sunshine Stars.
The former Flying Eagles goal minder is expected to be behind the sticks for the Umuahia Warriors at the Ondo Sports Complex in the 25th round of Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) action.
“It is always special to play games like this because it is an away fixture. I love away matches,” the goalkeeper told Futbalgalore.com today.
“We are undaunted with the atmosphere that awaits us in Akure. We want to play good football.”
Okafor arrives the capital of Ondo with his Abia Warriors side on 36 points .
“Our goal at Abia Warriors is to improve our League position and not to be obsessed about it, but try to win. Those three points would give us breathing room, not to say that we lack that already, but it would give us extra energy.
“Sunshine Stars need the points like us, we would like to do similarly and hopefully we can absorb some of the positive energy and get the three points.”
