Lagos - Bayelsa United won't go down to the Nigeria National
League without a fight.
The Yenegoa-based club is rock-bottom on the Nigeria
Professional Football League standings, but their striker Benard Ovoke is
adamant that both he and his team mates are not yet ready to wave the white
flag and willingly accept they will be relegated.
The Restoration Boys deservedly earned a one-all draw
against fellow relegation-battlers Kwara United on Wednesday.

On Wednesday 28th October, Ovoke and his team mates will be
up against Abia Warriors for a crucial league clash (kick-off 4pm) at the
Oghara Township Stadium - and the young forward admits that, from here on in,
every game is “like a cup final”.
