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
"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."
