Nembe City sure of staying afloat

23 July 2014, 20:25

Lagos - Nembe City coach John Aranka is confident the side can maintain their Nigerian Premier League status this season, especially if they land all their transfer targets.

The Bayelsa State outfit currently found themselves rocking bottom in the NPL standings, having managed just three wins from their 19 matches so far to sit eight points from safety.

However, with a host of new signings set to arrive before the resumption of league duties on Sunday, where City take on Sunshine Stars, Aranka believes they are more than capable of turning their season around.

"The toughest task facing us right now is how to permanently get the side out of the relegation zone," the tactician told SuperSport.

"That's the task before us as we get ready for the commencement of the second stanza of the season on Sunday.

"The task looks insurmountable but to us it is achievable with the quality of players in our fold.

"We've pencilled down few experienced players to boost the squad and once we're done with their clearance they're sure to bring added value to our survival campaign.

"I'm confident Nembe City will maintain its status in the Premier League next season."
