NPFL: We Expect A Tough Game But We Will Try Hard To Get The Right Result – Boboye
By Sampson Adedeji
Ahead of the match day 21 of the Nigeria Professional Football League, head coach of Akwa United Kennedy Boboye expect a tough match but they can get a positive result from the match, BSNSports.com.ng reports.
The Promise Keeper will play their city rival Dakkada FC in a derby match at Goodswill Akpabio stadium in Uyo on Sunday.
While speaking to the club media, Boboye hailed the players for their commitment despite a rough start to the season.
“After a very poor start to the season, we have worked hard to be where we are on the log and to remain on top we have to redouble our effort and be more committed and dedicated in all our matches because the second half of the season is usually very tough and competitive.”
“The game on Sunday against Dakkada will be a tough match, because at this level of football, you can’t afford to underrate any team. Since I came to Akwa United, we have played Dakkada on three occasions (1 win & 2 draws) and it has not always been easy playing against them.
“I’m satisfied with the level of confidence and commitment from my players and I’m calling on them to put in their very best on Sunday, knowing that a win will keep us at the top.”
“People are talking about our unbeaten run in the league but that is not our concern because those matches are gone and our concentration is on the game we have on Sunday.
“We will do everything to avoid distractions because this match is very important to us,” he stated.
