“We’ve been doing great so far, picking up wins that really matters for us. We’re already in the playoff now so I think so far this season, we have really improved from last season, and we hope to return to winning ways on Friday,” he told News24.

“On my own part, I’ve not really contributed enough but I know I’ll keep giving my best.

“Our toughest game so far was against Lagos Islanders, it was tense, close and very tough, we lost the game to Islanders in the end.”

Garba however called on organisers and sponsors to improve the game in the country.

“The organization has been fair but can be way better, so we’re hoping it will get better from next season.”

Dodan Warriors are in second position on the Atlantic Conference table after playing 11 games, won eight and losing three, with three games to go.

They play Customs 4pm local time on Friday at the indoor hall of the national stadium in Lagos.
