Anyu a happy man after heroics

14 October 2015, 10:52

Abuja - Nasarawa United midfielder Anyu Ishaya is a happy man after netting a brace against relegation-threatened Bayelsa United.

The Solid Miners defeated the Restoration Boys 2-1 in a week 33 Nigeria Professional Football League tie at the Oghara Township Stadium on Sunday.

“I’m happy that we are in the top-six of the Nigeria Professional Football League table. That's the reward for team work and focus,” said the midfielder to News24.

“We are capable of picking at least a continental ticket if we continue to step-up the plate.

The box-to-box playmaker was the best player on the pitch in a match the Solid Miners deserved to win.

“It is all God's glory, hard work and the support from the Club,” said Anyu.

“I'm happy that I scored two goals in Oghara, but I wouldn't be able to score without the support of my teammates. We play as a team, support each and make each other look good.”

“The Coach knows what I'm capable of and yes I'm playing my best football and enjoying it.”

Nasarawa United are sixth on the log with 52 points from 33 league games.

The Solid Miners will battle it out with Enyimba FC in a week 34 match at the Lafia Township Stadium on Sunday, October 18.
