Federation Cup is ours – Dolphins

Dolphins defender, Victor Ezuruike has said emphatically that his side will bench Federation Cup holders, Enyimba.

The Garden City side will clash with the 2013/14 Glo Premier League runners-up in the 2014 Federation Cup final billed for the Teslim Balogun Stadium, Lagos today.

The Port Harcourt based side piped Nigeria National League (NNL) side, Prime FC 1-0 in the semifinals in Abuja while the Peoples Elephant achieved same mark against Nigerian topflight newcomers, Giwa FC in Abeokuta to pave the way for today’s grand finale.

Ezuruike said his side were not satisfied with the Confederation Cup ticket already in their kitty even before the Cup final but will go all out to overrun Enyimba for the title.

“We’ll certainly come back to Port Harcourt with the Federation Cup trophy, we may have already earned a ticket to Africa by default but we want to prove to everyone that we deserved the Confederation Cup ticket with a resounding victory against holders, Enyimba on Sunday in Lagos.

“We need the Cup title badly as it’s sure to fetch us lots of goodies as well as etch our names in gold.

“It’s going to be an explosive match but we’ll always come out of the epic clash victorious, I think we’ve the magic wand to lord it over Enyimba.

“I understand that Enyimba have been at Ijebu Ode for several days putting finishing touches for the game but that will count for nothing as we’re destined to win this year’s Federation Cup title.”
