Enyimba targets Glo Premier League record

09 November 2015, 18:56

Aba - Enyimba striker Chimezie Amanfor says the People's Elephant will be targeting all three points when they face Sunshine Stars in their final fixture of the season on Sunday.

Amanfor and his teammates clinched the league title on Sunday, despite being held to a goalless at home to Warri Wolves, although they remain one point shy of their 70-point target for the campaign.

As such, they need just one point from their clash with Stars at the Teslim Balogun Stadium in Lagos to reach that tally.

"Our target prior to the clash against Warri Wolves was to hit the 70 points mark as well as claim our seventh Nigerian title," Amanfor explained to SuperSport.com.

"We understand that nobody has won the league title on 70 points so we want to set a new record in that aspect when we confront Sunshine Stars in the last day match in Lagos.

"Ordinarily, the match would have been jamborees of a sort for us but with the new target we are going to Lagos to fight for the whole three points at stake or worst case scenario pick a point which will secure 70 points.

"After the barren draw against Warri Wolves on Sunday celebration has been endless in and around the city of Aba.

"We have become celebrity overnight as everybody stops on the road or street to greet and hail us so we are enamored to go for the last onslaught which is the 70-point mark."
