“We’re happy with the point at Sharks, it’s not an easy work to earn a point in Port Harcourt.
“We needed to fight extra hard to salvage a point for ourselves after the weekend home draw against FC Taraba.
“Sharks are a good side and they fought really hard to end the encounter in their own favour, but met a side not ready to concede defeat.
“The draw will motivate us to go for a win against Gabros at home when the season restarts after the three-week break.
“We must still continue our home work even on break as we’ve two tough away matches at champions Kano Pillars and Dolphins once we’re done with the Gabros clash,” said the former Dolphins marksman to supersport.com.
The point at Sharks adds up Giwa FC's points haul to 17 from a possible 30 in the 10-week old Nigerian elite league.
