Nigeria National League, NNL side, Kogi United FC have promised their opponent in the Week Six encounter, Mighty Jets FC of Jos that there will be no safe landing in Lokoja when both side meets on Saturday.
Chief Coach of the Wada Boys, Fatai Osho noted that the match is as important as any other fixtures as he also believed victory in that game would boost confidence of his boys as they continue in their quest to grab one of the available tickets to the apex league in the country.
While speaking through the club’s media officer, Wale Mustapha, Osho said “We have resolved completely to beat Mighty Jets on saturday here in Lokoja, we have been down having lost our last two straight away games, despite putting up our best. A win for us will help us back to where we rightly belong, I mean we want to get back to normal ways, and with God and support of fans we would achieve that.
“We have not been happy that we are yet to get away results so far, but we are almost there, the team is improving by games and very soon, we will get it right, we only need patience from the management, supporters and fans” Osho said.
Team Manager of the Confluence club, Ameh Henry has also thrown his weight behind his team and believe the club is on the right track of attaining higher status this season.
Henry, who will have his team facing Mighty Jets, handled by his former Coach at Lobi Bank of Makurdi, Bernard Ogbe said victory for Kogi United against the Jos-based side is not negotiable.
“The team is going for total victory,” Henry said. We are not playing for anything else. We have taken over the available lands for Mighty Jets to land in Lokoja, the only space is on water or mountains, and you know what that means. Yes, Coach Ogbe was my coach during my playing days, and its an opportunity to meet him again, but on Saturday, it is full of business, and total profit of the deal will go to Kogi United”
It will be recalled that Kogi United beat Mighty Jets 2-1 in similar fixture last season, and hope to repeat the feat on Saturday at Lokoja Confluence Stadium.
