As hostilities begin today at the Bet9ja NLO Super 8 at the Agege Township Stadium, former Nigerian international Lawrence Ukaegbu has assured that his Enyimba Feeders FC are not under pressure ahead of their confrontation with FRSC FC.
In an exclusive chat with thenff.com in Lagos, the Enyimba Feeders technical director said he expects a good game when his players file out against the Road Marshals.
“We are not under any pressure at all. My players are in good condition for the game and despite not knowing much about FRSC, we will play our normal football and expect to win the game,” Ukaegbu said.
The former wing wizard, who was very prominent in the Flying Eagles team to Chile ’87 FIFA U20 World Cup further affirmed that the standard of the game in the Nationwide League One (NLO) is very high and it was very difficult to gain promotion to the Nigeria National League (NNL).
“We will use the Super 8 to prepare our players very well for the challenges of the NNL. Six of my players in the Feeders team have been promoted to the main team of Enyimba FC ahead of the 2016/17 season of the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL).”
