Coach Justin Tenger of Akwa United FC of Uyo has said that the club's 3-2 victory over Kaduna United, would help it ease out of relegation in the ongoing 2012/2013 Globacom Premier League.
Tenger disclosed this to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Wednesday after his team’s victory in a midweek match at the Uyo Township Stadium.
The coach said that the club needed the maximum three points or a draw in its next match with Kwara United to completely escape the relegation waters.
NAN reports that the match between it and Kwara United would be played at Lokoja Township Stadium, following the Ilorin boys banishment by the league board.
"We will never see the relegation waters.
"I say this because you will recall what I earlier said that I have an agreement with my God that no matter the challenge, my club experience will scale us through.
"My God will still perform the miracles he performed in our matches with Warri Wolves and Kaduna United at Lokoja, when we meet with Kwara United.
"My God is the one working it out for us this way. I am not the one and I will continue to give glory to Him.
"We need the support and prayers of the fans because that is what will help us out when it seems as if there is no road.
"My assurance to the fans is that we will not disappoint them as Akwa United will never lose out,” Tenger said
Also speaking, the Technical Adviser of Kaduna United, Coach Ben Duamlong, said that his team lost to a lucky team.
Duamlong described the officiating of the match as “excellent."
