Lagos - Captain of Heartland FC Chinedu Efugh says his side
is hoping to take all three points at Enyimba in Wednesday’s rescheduled Nigeria
Professional Football League (NPFL) matchday 6 oriental derby inside the
Umuahia Township Stadium.
Admitting the tie will not be easy, Efugh said his side are
prepared for the banters the Aba outfit will throw at them in the clash.
“Of course, it’s going to be tight and tough given the
existing rivalry between both familiar sides.
“We are prepared just waiting patiently for matchday to
unleash our whole weight on Enyimba.
“We are quite hopeful that the clash will be different in
term of result compared with past away results so far in the ongoing league.
“Of course, we appreciate the fact that we are yet to claim
three points on the road so far in the season but something tells me the search
will end at Enyimba.

is coming on the heel of our home win against Sunshine Stars.
“The Umuahia turf is a neutral ground for both sides and
another incentive for us to go all out to challenge for the maximum points.

believe we will have a good song at the end of the duel,” said for former Enugu
Rangers strongman to supersport.com.
