Akwa Utd’ll fight Ikorodu Utd

THE belief that Akwa United will underrate Ikorodu United in today’s reschedule premier league match at the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium in Uyo has been debunked.

According to a release issued by Club Media Officer Uwem Ekoh, the chairman of the club Mr Paul Bassey told the players after their last training session yesterday that they should underrate Ikorodu at their own peril.

“ News of their lack of motivation and even thrashing at the hands of Ifeanyi Ubah has nothing to do with us. You should come out tomorrow (today) determined to win and win well”, the Chairman told the players.

He further told them that the Executive Governor of the State His Excellency Mr Udom Emmanuel is delighted with the progress the team is making so far “..and we have to continue to keep him happy. So far he has given us all we need to succeed and we have to play our part and reciprocate his fatherly gesture” he said.

The players through captain Otobong Effiong promised to live up to expectations.

Coach Maurice Cooreman whose last port of call was Ikorodu United when he led them to the elite class says he relishes the challenge of playing against his former wards.

Apart from a slight knee knock suffered by Emmanuel Chiegozie and a fever condition reported by Kufre Ebong, the team is fit and raring to go.

Akwa’s next match will be against Rangers International in Enugu over the week end.
