Port Harcourt - Rivers United have been handed a massive
boost ahead of Sunday’s match day 13 Nigeria Professional Football League
(NPFL) game against Plateau United.
This follows the news that Ivoirian striker, Kuy Kuemian
Venance is fit again.
Kuemian has not played for United since April 10 when he
suffered a strain of the left quadriceps in the club’s 1-2 defeat to Heartland
at the Dan Anyiam Stadium, Owerri.
The former Leones Vegetarianos man duly missed out on the
club’s 1-0 win over Kano Pillars in Port Harcourt on April 17 but has now been
passed fit to return against Plateau United this weekend.

“The doctor (Chukwuemeka Agi) asked him to stay away from
training for a week and he duly complied.
“He is available for selection for the next game against
Plateau United in Jos.
“Guy is an important player and he will make the attack even
stronger,” Eguma told Rivers United media.
Kuemian made his debut for Rivers United in the club’s 1-2
defeat to MFM FC in Lagos on February 24 and did not miss a single game until
he strained his quadriceps in Owerri.
He scored arguably the club’s most important goal in the
league this season-an injury time winner in the match day five NPFL clash
against Nasarawa United in Port Harcourt on March 6. For
