Aniekpeno: We must believe in beating Enyimba

05 August 2015, 10:05

Abuja - Aniekpeno Udoh has urged his Akwa United teammates to find enough belief heading into the midweek test with Barcelona.

The Promise Keepers play host to the Nigeria Professional Football League leaders very much as the underdogs, but with their striker urging that they find confidence.

“We are facing the best team in the land and the first premise in order to compete and to be able to get something positive is to believe in the chances that we have,” the determined striker told News24 this week.

“Whatever the case may be, we have to believe in ourselves and that is the only way.

“We must be convinced that anything can happen. No team has found it easy with them (Enyimba) at peak performance. But we will have the potential to compete.”

Akwa United head into the fixture off the back of an impressive one-all draw against Bayelsa United.

“When you play against these teams, it does not matter what state you or the other team are in. What we have to do is exhaust all the possibilities against a team that we know dominates every facet of the game.

“We all have to be at our highest level. We are playing at home, which is an important factor to consider, and we have to have possession, we will suffer if we cannot take the ball. The main goal is to bag the three points,” the forward who netted the equalizer against Bayelsa United added.
