Ayobami Asekunowo, Rivers United defender, has said that today’s week 35 match against Warri Wolves will be a tough one but admitted that the latter would pay for their heavy loss in Enugu against Rangers in week 34.
Recall that Enugu Rangers walloped Rivers United 4-0 at the Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium in a week 34 tie. And Asekunowo said that they have gotten over what he described as their ‘poorest performance.’
“Yes we have but not fully, that was our poorest performance this season but that defeat won’t in any way affect our focus on the league title.”
With four matches left for Rivers United, Asekunowo engaged in a simple calculation that would favour the Port Harcourt-based team.
“We still have two home and two away matches.
“This weekend, we shall play against Warri Wolves at home and trust me we shall vent the anger from that defeat in Enugu on them.
“Once we record a win, we should reclaim the top position.
“We shall proceed to Bauchi to face Wikki Tourist with a target to pick a point which will seal our title hopes.
“We shall come back home to host Abia Warriors, which is a must win for us then we shall head to Uyo for our last match of the season against Akwa United,” Ayobami explained.
While Wikki Tourists will give all it can to secure a continental slot, Abia Warriors will be battling to survive the drop, the defender carefully explained why that won’t be a problem.
“Abia Warriors will visit us here in Port Harcourt, so you should expect a win for Rivers United because as it stands now, we can’t afford to drop a point at home.”
