NPFL: Eguma puts away win aside, focuses on Ifeanyiubah

Rivers United head coach Stanley Eguma has shifted his gaze from last weekend’s victory at Kwara United to his team’s next league game against FC Ifeanyiubah.

United, currently placed sixth on the Nigeria Professional Football League log will host the Anambra Warriors at the Yakubu Gowon Stadium on Sunday, fresh from their priceless victory in Ilorin last weekend.

Eguma however believes that the away win is not an indicator that his team will steamroll over their opponents at home on Sunday.

“We won away from home but that is not a yardstick to measure,” Eguma told¬†

“We know we have to do better than we did away in order to make sure we get the three points in our home game because it is a very important game.”

United have only lost once in their last five league meetings with FC Ifeanyiubah but Eguma, who once coached the club during the days of its former owner, Gabros; is expecting a tough challenge on Sunday.

“I expect a very strong game. We know Ifeanyiubah have been a very formidable team and a strong force in the league. They were also in the continent last season and have not started badly,” he stressed.

“So, we are not taking them for granted and we have to work very hard to see see that the three maximum points at stake are achieved.

“The players are working very hard. We are fashioning out our strategy and making sure we get the right tactics to employ so that we win the game.”

United’s opponents FC Ifeanyiubah are eleventh on the log with thirteen points, three points behind Sunday’s hosts.
