Rivers United Technical Manager Stanley Eguma says he expects his team to maintain focus and put up better performances over the final twelve Nigeria Professional Football League games rather than worry about the setback in their previous games.
Despite having fallen to only three defeats this season with most recently a 2-1 lose to Kwara United in Ilorin on matchday 26, Rivers United are certainly in fine form having also a four point lead on top of the NPFL log.
The “Pride of Rivers” will host MFM FC today Sunday, 8th May, 2022 at the Adokiye Amiesimaka Stadium, as the Nigeria Professional Football League enters matchday 27 and Coach Eguma maintains his men will not underrate the “Olukoya Boys”.
What happened to us in Ilorin was a big setback to us, considering that we were really on course. But we have set that behind us and looking forward to a better performance this weekend against MFM.
Coach Eguma says “we are looking to bounce back, the players are showing good signs, the spirit is high and they are ready to go. They are very motivated I believe everybody knows what is at stake, and we are hell bent on ensuring we maintain our momentum.”
“Here at Rivers United we don’t like to take any team for granted, no team is a pushover and the teams fighting regulation are even the most dangerous. The more you neglect them, that will be at your own peril.
We are really prepared to give our best because we know that MFM out here to fight, they need some points to survive and here in Port Harcourt they will not his their feelings. So, we are coming out in full force to ensure no stone is unturned to get the points at stake. We are really prepared”, he said.
In conclusion Stanley Eguma urge Rivers United fans to come out en masse to support the team, so the ‘Pride of Rivers’ would make them proud at the end of the season.
