Giwa FC aim to keep top spot

29 April 2015, 11:33

Lagos - Giwa FC captain and central midfielder, Charles Henlong has said his side will work assiduously to maintain their prime position on the league log, Supersport reports.

The Tin City side currently lead the 20-team Nigerian top flight on 11 points after six weeks of football hostilities.

Henlong said the side's top-of-the-table position has come to stay as they are determined to go the extra mile in terms of training to shake off any challengers.

“Of course, our top-of-table position is for real as we’re not in a hurry to relinquish the top spot.

“It’s certain to be tough maintaining the status quo but we strongly believe hard work will do the magic for us.

“Last season wasn’t easy for us as newcomers and we ended the season well though not too well but enough to get noticed.

“We’re watched by virtually all the teams right now and that simply tells us we need to put in extra work to keep ourselves afloat.

“We kicked off our campaign a bit slowly but right now we’ve got the rhythm and I’m sure we will further improve on our performance as the season progresses.

“We’ll take the momentum to newcomers, Gabros at the weekend in Nnewi to chance earning another wonderful result,” said the former Mighty Jets star to supersport.com.

The Jos-based side held Lobi Stars to a 1-1 draw on Wednesday to take their total earnings to 11 points from a possible 18 in the six-week old Nigerian elite league.
