Sharks FC eye Fed Cup success

23 July 2014, 19:26

Port Harcourt - Sharks coach Gbenga Ogunbote says the side's ultimate goal in this season's Federation Cup is be the last team standing at the end of the tournament.

The Port Harcourt-based outfit earned their place in the quarter-finals, having seen off former champions Heartland and Dynamites in the two previous rounds, and Ogunbote is now allowing himself to look ahead to a potential title-winning campaign.

"It has been an interesting run for us in the competition, and we hope we can sustain the momentum," he told SL10.

"The ultimate desire is to win the cup, but we just have to take the games as they come without giving ourselves some unnecessary distractions. We just have to take things slowly and steadily."

He added: "Like I've said, we just have to take the games as they come without unnecessary distractions. Of course it will be crowning glory for the club and me if eventually we win it.

"It has been an interesting season and a more interesting run in the Federations Cup so I'd say it would be nice if we won."
