Lagos - El-Kanemi Warriors coach, Kelechi Emeteole has expressed
hope of continuing with the team's momentum by picking maximum points when they
host Sharks FC on Sunday in a Glo Premier League match day 32 fixture in
The Warriors have enjoyed a two-match unbeaten run including
battling to a 1-1 draw last weekend against relegation-haunted FC Taraba in
'Caterpillar,' as he's called, told www.npfl.ng that the
Borno state team must come up with their big game attitude if they are to win
at home against a Sharks side battling relegation. He added that teams in the
lower rung of the league are dangerous and very difficult to play as they come
fighting for whatever they can get without fear or favour.

"Our match against Sharks of Port Harcourt is another
crucial match, forget the fact that they are in the struggling line. We don't
want to lose points because we don't want to allow any team to overtake us.
"I don't think we would take them for granted, teams
like these are very difficult to beat. Looking at the way we outplayed Enyimba
in our last home game we ought not to be where we are. I'm hopeful that we
would get a good result. I would work with what I have to ensure that we get
the required result," he said.
Commenting on the draw against FC Taraba, Emeteole said:
"We managed to get a point in our match against FC Taraba but I was still
not happy because we did not play up to our expectation. We were giving away
the ball and doing things very casually. Every department was faulty, the
defence was relaxed, the attack were not biting, we would work on the whole
team and put them on their toes.
"I'm happy that Lobi Stars also drew their last match
because they are the team closest to us. If they had won, they would have moved
above us. But still we retained our position and if we continue picking results
like this, we would survive relegation."For
