Lobi Stars captain and central defender, Anthony Agbaji, has assured that his side will not disappoint at Heartland.

The Pride of Benue will be the visitors at Naze Millionaires in the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) match-day 30 clash on Sunday at the Dan Anyiam Stadium in Owerri.

Agbaji said his side has put behind it the disappointment over match-day 29 1-1 against Wikki Tourists to concentrate on the clash against Heartland in Owerri.

“We have put behind us the disappointment and shocked draw against Wikki Tourists in Makurdi to go to Owerri to fight for the whole points at stake.

“Of course, we are not under pressure at the moment but within ourselves we understand the need to raise our game to win more matches on the road.

“Our position on the league log is far from being comfortable so we need more points to shore up our rating.

“One of the marked away matches on our calendar is the clash at Heartland though largely to be difficult but we have no choice right now than to fight hard to earn a decent result at Owerri,” said the Lobi Stars strongman to supersport.com.

The Makudi outfit is 14th on the 20-team top flight on 35 points from possible 87 points in the 29-week old league.
