October 14, 2016

Nasarawa United’s goalkeeper trainer, Aloy Agu, says today’s Federation Cup semi-final clash with Enyimba FC billed for the Lekan Salami Stadium, Ibadan, will bring the best out of both sides.

“Both teams were impressive in the just-concluded league season. Enyimba is a very formidable team but you can’t take anything away from Nasarawa United too, we have done so well this season.

“Fans should be expecting a very tactical and competitive match. We are well prepared for the match and fans are going to enjoy good game on Saturday,” Agu who is also the Super Eagles keeper’s trainer told Tribunesport.

“Continental ticket is our dream, so our expectation is to win this game and get the ticket at the end of it all.

“Our position in the just-concluded league season has nothing to do with Saturday’s  match, this is a different ball game entirely, this is FA Cup. What is important to Nasarawa on Saturday is to win and make our fans happy and thank God there is no injury worry in our team,” Agu boasted.

Meanwhile, Enyimba FC captain, Chinedu Udoji, saysthe dream of the People’s Elephant playing on the continent next year is on course.

“This is the only chance we have in order to play in the continental championship again next year and we won’t allow it slip away. We are going to approach the game with all seriousness like a Cup final.

“We could not defend the league title successfully this year, but thank God we have the Federation Cup to make up for the disappointment. We have to put in everything into the match to see us through,” Udoji told Tribunesport before a training session in Ibadan during the week.

It will be recalled that Enyimba FC finished 10th position while Nasarawa followed on the log also with 50 points in the just-ended league season.
