FC Taraba head coach, Ndubuisi Nduka, has said the team must up its away record to avoid relegation.

The Jalingo outfit will be the guests of Dolphins in Sunday’s Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) match-day 30 clash at the Liberation Stadium in Port Harcourt.

Nduka said the side’s stability on the home front must be replicated with equal performance on the road for it to sleep with both eyes closed.

“We need to improve on our away record if we are to survive the drop at the end of the ongoing league season.

“We have somehow got it right on the home front. We must strive to show the same resilience on the road.

“Dolphins’ clash is another opportunity for us to get something decent on the road this weekend.

“The clash is expected to be tough considering the uncomfortable position of Dolphins on the league log.

“However, we are working extremely hard on the Dolphins clash to ensure the end result favours us.

“Already, we have forgotten the home win against Giwa FC and paying 100 per cent attention to the Garden City clash,” said the former Dolphins coach to supersport.com.

FC Taraba is 19th on the league log on 29 points from a possible 87 in the 29-week-old top flight.
