Niger Tornadoes shift attention to Akwa United tie

08 April 2016, 09:57

Lagos - Niger Tornadoes have shifted their focus to the Nigeria Premier League MatchDay 11 tie against Akwa United on Sunday, after a 2-2 draw with Sunshine Stars.

Tornadoes left back Gabriel Wassa has said his side's midweek draw against Sunshine Stars will not stop them from picking up three points at Akwa United, SuperSport reports.

The newcomers will be the guests of Promise Keepers in Sunday’s Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) match-day 11 clash at the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium in Uyo.

Wassa, who blamed missed chances at goal for the shared spoils against the Owena Waves, said his side will make the necessary amendments for the road-trip tie at Akwa United.

“I’m not happy with the 2-2 draw against Sunshine Stars but to God be the glory that we did not lose all three points in the game.

“We were not sharp in attack and there were some defensive blunders but all that is behind us now.

“We just have to remain focused and correct our mistakes going into Sunday's clash at Akwa United in Uyo.

“I know the encounter will be very difficult given the poor result the home side posted against visiting Abia Warriors, but I’m confident we will get the right result.

The Minna outfit are in 12th position on the 20-team top flight on 11 points from a possible 30 in the 10-week old league.
