Miners will be too solid for Warriors - Nasarawa United boss

03 November 2016, 21:26

Lagos - Nasarawa United FC chairman, Barrister Isaac Danladi boasted on Thursday that his Solid Miners will be too strong for FC IfeanyiUbah when both teams clash in the Federation Cup final on Sunday.

For the second year running, a new winner is bound to emerge for the oldest competition in the land when the Miners and Anambra Warriors tango for 90 minutes on the artificial turf of the Teslim Balogun Stadium.

“We are very focused on winning this competition. For one week, we camped in Ibadan to avoid distractions, and we have confidence that we are ready to go for it on Sunday,” Danladi said.

The Lafia –based club will hope to benefit from their experience in playing in the continent this year, when they reached the second round of the CAF Confederation Cup before losing to CS Constantinois of Algeria.

FC IfeanyiUbah have some pedigree as well. The Club is only two years old and after finishing 11th in the Nigeria Professional Football League in their first season, finished in 4th place in the just –ended season, in addition to making it to the final of the Federation Cup.

The Anambra Warriors are powered by billionaire industrialist, Dr. Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah, and do not have problems of funding. The roster of the Nnewi –based club reads like a global society, with Nigerians, Cameroonians, Congolese, Senegalese and Brazilians to be found on the register.
