Nasarawa defender talks tough ahead 3SC tie

26 August 2015, 15:06

Ibadan - Nasarawa United defender Ifeanyi Nweke has been talking tough ahead of their rescheduled Nigeria Professional Football League fixture against Shooting Stars in Ibadan.

United are currently on a high after ending champions, Kano Pillars' 12-year unbeaten home record last weekend at the Sani Abacha Stadium.

And as they face Shooting Stars in their rescheduled week 25 fixture in Ibadan on Wednesday, Nweke, who has been a revelation for United this season, says they hope to exact revenge on the Oluyole Warriors. "Shooting Stars are the first team to pick a point against Nasarawa united at the Lafia Township Stadium this season," he explained.

"It happened in the first leg, so they owe us. Our team is in a good shape to fight back and I'm very happy to play against Shooting because it's going to be a tough game, but by God's grace I will give all my best," Nweke posited.

Nasarawa United currently place 8th on the league table after their historic win over Pillars and Nweke is still speaking on the win in Kano.

"Well it was my greatest moment, being part of the team that broke the 12-year unbeaten run of Kano Pillars, I'm the happiest guy on earth and I feel on top of the world because it's not easy beating Kano Pillars home and away," he stated.
