29 September 2015, 12:10

Port Harcourt - Dolphins FC coach Stanley Eguma has reaffirmed that his team still has a clear chance to keep its Premier League status intact.

The Port Harcourt base team sit on the 17th position on the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) log as at week 31 and with just eight more matches to go it looks though and may be fight to finish at the base of the log.

"There are eight more matches to go till the end of the season, we shall face each match at a time and we aren't scared of the task ahead,” said Eguma.

"There are a couple of teams trapped in the relegation zone, seven teams aren't just safe yet. On our own part we shall stay focus and I'm very optimistic that we shall come out of it. It's not over until it's really over,” Eguma told News24.

Kwara United who just came back to the NPFL aren't safe, 2014 Federation Cup finalist, Dolphins FC are deep in the relegation zone alongside city rivals, Sharks FC while both Bayelsa United and FC Taraba who fought till the last day of last season to avoid relegation looks certain they won't survive the drop this time around.

2015 Federation Cup finalist, Akwa United and Lobi Stars are also not safe yet though one of the two clubs will play on the continent next season because the Federation Cup offers the winner of the competition a CAF Confederation Cup ticket.
