"The defeat in Katsina (against El-Kanemi Warriors) will not affect us at all. We did not start well and missed some of our players due to injuries. But in Aba, we will start strong and play well. I believe we will carry the day, by God's grace, “Udoji told EnyimbaFC.net.

"In football, no two games are the same. The challenges vary from game to game, so that El Kanemi Warriors game is gone and we are ready for a new challenge.

"Come Sunday, I believe we will get the three points. We are not thinking about any previous game. We are just focused on this one," he said.
