Emeteole wants a bite of Sharks

02 October 2015, 21:33

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 Katsina.

The Warriors have enjoyed a two-match unbeaten run including battling to a 1-1 draw last weekend against relegation-haunted FC Taraba in Jalingo.

'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."
