Port Harcourt - Sharks defender Chima Akas is confident his
club will avoid the drop by the end of the current Glo Premier League season.
The Port-Harcourt side are presently 18th in the 20 team
league with 13 games left and following their 1-0 away win over fellow
strugglers Bayelsa United over the weekend, the left-back is confident they
will avoid the drop.

"I'm sure we will avoid relegation. We just need to
keep winning our games and don't drop too many points.
"We started the season so poorly and it has affected us
to this stage, but we have to keep fighting.
"The league doesn't end until the last day and we do
not intend to give up. It is not going to be easy but I am confident it is
something we can do.
"Our form has improved in recent games and we must keep
the focus and don't lose concentration. If we can win all our remaining home
games and get as many points as possible away, we will not be relegated,"
Akas has since returned to the Super Eagles camp, ahead of
next month's Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Tanzania and October's
CHAN qualifiers against Burkina Faso.For
