Enyimba of Aba would tomorrow confront league leaders, Plateau United in the Match day 22 of the Nigeria Professional League.
The People’s Elephant were not too impressive in the first stanza of the 2016/2017 league season, but have so far proved bookmakers wrong of what they are capable of doing.
The Aba based outfit are 9th on the league table with 31 points, having fallen to the superior fire power of former handler, Austin Eguavoen who now tutors Sunshine Stars.
With the last defeat at the back of their minds, it is believed that the Aba outfit will not want to concede another defeat as they confront Plateau United who are currently leading the pack.
For United, it might as well be another victory as the Itodo led attack is warming up.
The fear of Daniel Itodo’s long throws is now the beginning of wisdom for Plateau United’s opponents. Remo Stars were the latest victims losing 0-1 to Plateau at Rwang Pam Stadium, Jos.
Plateau coach, Kennedy Boboye has however enthused that they fear no foe, even as they confront Enyimba in their own territory.
“The title is for us to grab and we will not allow it to slip us by. Football is funny though, but we are determined and focused, he concluded.
