Heartland lack confidence to face Wolves
Heartland striker, Jolly Osas has said his side will not promise anything in the mid-week Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) Matchday 2 encounter at Warri Wolves.
The Cup holders were humbled by NPFL newcomers, NembeCity on Matchday 1 in Owerri and on Sunday secured an unconvincing 2-1 win against visiting Gabonese side, Union Sportive Bitam in the CAF Confederation Cup.
Osas said his teammates’ confidence level is too low going into the league clash against the Warri-based side.
“The spirit among my colleagues is low, I think we’re not in the right mood to make promises as we travel to meet Warri Wolves for the mid-week game in Warri.
“Any result we’re able to grab in the encounter could as well rank as the best result at the moment and the supporters will do well to live with it.
“Probably a psychologist is greatly needed at this trying period in our lives to psyche the players to see whether there is any magic that will help us overcome the waning confidence and morale in the team.
“The team need motivation to keep the flag flying. We still have what it takes to fight ourselves back to reckoning both on the continent and in the league only that the atmosphere is killing the fighting spirit in us. I pray somebody somewhere does something urgently before it gets too late,” he said.
The Naze Millionaires have been reeling under severe financial strain and motivation has been at its lowest ebb as the team have continued to churn out unimpressive results in recent outings.
