FC Ifeanyi Ubah will be aiming at ending the first stanza of the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) on high as they host Shooting Stars of Ibadan at the Ifeanyi Ubah International stadium (The Fortress), Nnewi-Ozubulu today.
A win for the Anambra Warriors will make it six games unbeaten run in the league and underlines the team’s form as they sustain their upwards move on the log.
FC Ifeanyi Ubah are currently 8th on the log with 25 points from 18 matches while Shooting Stars are 13th on the table with 22 points from 18 matches.
Although the Anambra Warriors appear poised to pick the maximum points at stake, it may not be an easy game as the Oluyole Warriors are desperate to avoid slipping into relegation zone and would want to deploy every weapon in their armoury to get a favourable result.
FC Ifeanyi Ubah coach, Yaw Preko, is very confident his team will emerge victorious as he declared that Shooting Stars will not escape defeat.
“It has been an interesting first half of the league season with its ups and downs especially with the journey on the road.
“We’ve learnt our lessons from the outcome and we will continue to push hard to get the results. The game on Wednesday is not different, we will prepare for it in all segments as we want to get all the three points available and further strengthen our resolve and current position,” Preko said.
