Nasarawa United hope to stay in contention

23 September 2014, 16:37

Lafia - Nasarawa United head coach Baba Ganaru Mohammed is hoping to stay in the title hunt with results on the road against Gombe United and Dolphins FC.

The Solid Miners are in second place in the league standings, separated by three points from the current pace setters and defending champions Kano Pillars.

Mohammed has set his sights on putting points on the board and stay on the heels of the side he guided to the championship last season.

"Picking some vital points from the two games is crucial for our title hopes at this stage of the competition and we are determined to make something out of it," the Nasarawa coach told the LMC website.

"We played well, we took our chances against Sharks and thank God we won, my focus now is on our two away games and I am sure we are picking one win or at worst a draw in the matches.

"This is not the first time I will pick my points at the crucial stage of the league. I have done it with my previous clubs and I see this team repeating the same feat in this our road trip," he added.

Nasarawa have thus far registered 44 points, with eleven matches left until the season comes to an end.
