Ikhana wants focus from Enyimba

28 October 2015, 11:06

Aba - Head coach of Enyimba FC, Kadiri Ikhana has urged his players to focus on dismantling struggling Kwara United in a week 35 Nigeria Professional Football League clash this midweek.

The People's Elephants tackle the Harmony Boys at the Enyimba International Stadium on Wednesday and need a win to boost their grip on top of the 20-team table.

Ikhana, who has worked with Kwara United in his coaching career in the past does not want his troops to underrate the inconsistent United at home.

“It’s important we put our eyes on the ball and not be distracted by any side and that include Kwara United who we play next at home,” Ikhana told News24.

“They may not be predictable at the moment but it's a team that can cause havoc on their day. So you don’t want to think you’ll walk over them easily.

“It will be an emotional match for me. I have managed Kwara United in the past but what matters most to me right now is Enyimba. We need to consolidate on the log. By the grace of God we will teach them how to play the game of soccer,” he added.

The week 35 encounter will get underway by 4pm local time at the Enyimba International Stadium on Wednesday.
