Udeh: Taraba can't be afraid

05 August 2015, 08:33

Abuja - Chinonso Udeh has reflected on how FC Taraba cannot afford to be afraid against Enugu Rangers in a Nigeria Professional Football League week 21 encounter on Wednesday.

The rock bottom side are on the road to the Flying Antelopes after ending a miserable run of 18 games without a win with a 1-0 victory over Sunshine Stars on Sunday.

“We have great respect for the opponent, because they are a great team, but we cannot afford to be afraid,” mused the wing-back in an interview with News24.

“It is only one more game, we aren’t going to kill anyone. And I was taught from childhood to be brave no matter what happens.

“We have no complex or fear. Moreover, it is an honour and a pleasure for us to face Rangers.

“Also, this is the time for us to play them, this is a game where we can gain prestige.

“The differences between Rangers and Taraba are clear, but in one game, anything can happen. We have to do things very well, tread lightly and make as few mistakes as possible, because they are specialists in taking advantage.

“If we are as we were in some poor games we played in the first round of matches then we will not have any chance. If we are as we were against Sunshine Stars, we have a chance and we will cling to that.

“It is very important to believe. Being a believer, to use a religious term, is an obligation. Still, we will also have to work.”
