Port Harcourt – Rivers United captain Festus Austin insists his side will give their all in their final Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) game against Akwa United on Sunday.

Currently second on the NPFL standings, Rivers United will fall short in their aspirations of winning the NPFL title if the leaders, Enugu Rangers claim a point at home to El Kanemi Warriors on Sunday.

Austin says getting a win in the club’s final game away to Akwa United will be crucial to the side’s chances of qualifying for the Caf Champions League next season.

“The fans must rally round the players as we will fight till the end,” he said.

Rivers United is currently second on the NPFL standings with 57 points from 35 matches.
