Christian Obiozor targets return next week

18 September 2015, 16:18

Lagos - Enyimba marksman Christian Obiozor will not be returning to action on Sunday when the People's Elephant square off against El Kanemi in the Nigeria Professional Football League.

The official word from Aba last month was that the striker will spend four weeks on the sidelines after damaging his cruciate ligament in a league game against Enugu Rangers.

Though the estimation done by the club medics was not exactly on point, Obiozor resumed training with the two - time African champions last week and could be available for selection on September 27 against Wikki Tourist.

''I am okay now, I started full training last week but I won't travel with them for the game with El Kanemi. I can't play this week but I'll play next week,'' Christian Obiozor told news24.

Nine matches before the league comes to a conclusion, Enyimba are well placed to win their seventh title, with their main challenger Warri Wolves four points off the pace, and Obiozor is thinking along the same line.

''Enyimba will win the NPFL for sure because our remaining matches are against teams we believe we can pick up points from,'' he added.

In their last four matches of this season, Enyimba will face Kwara United, Abia Warriors, Warri Wolves and Sunshine Stars.
