Juth FC targets NNL Survival against FC Abuja


Juth FC coach, Taiye Yusuf is confident his side will edge already relegated side, FC Abuja to survive relegation in the ongoing 2012/13 Nigeria National League (NNL) season.

The Healers are 11th on the NNL Division A log on 36 points and will be the guests of the Abuja-based side in the last game of the season.

Yusuf said his side are not foreseeing a tough challenge from FC Abuja when both sides clash in the season’s last match.

“We’re not safe at the moment but we’re confident of grabbing three points at FC Abuja in the season’s last game to survive relegation.

“We’re believing that officiating will be balance and we don’t foresee FC Abuja posing a hard nut to crack.

“We know teams already down try playing the spoiler so we’re not leaving any stone unturned in our preparations to ensure we win the encounter,” said the former Ranchers Bees coach to supersport.com.

Yusuf said his side are satisfied with their performance in the outgoing season even as they make last minute effort to escape relegation.

“I’m satisfied with the side performance given the circumstance I met on ground when I joined the side from Ranchers Bees.

“We’ve done a lot to stabilise the side and once we survive the drop, I foresee the side’s contesting for promotion next season.

“Plateau United were almost in the same plight when I took over the affairs of the team, first it was the battle to save the side from going on relegation which was achieved and the next season I guided the side to win promotion same thing I’ll do at Juth FC next season,” he said.
