Enyimba attacking midfielder, Ikechukwu Ibenegbu has said his side will be tough against top-flight newcomers, Gombe United.

The People’s Elephant host the Desert Scorpions in Sunday’s Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) matchday 3 clash at the UJ Esuene Stadium in Calabar.

Ibenegbu said his side will pull their weights against the Gombe outfit aimed at amassing all three points.


“We will come out strong to attack from the blast of the whistle to ensure we claim the whole three points at stake.

“Already, we quite understand that there is no small team in the top-flight so the idea of underrating the side will not come up at all, we will be hard and tough throughout the encounter.

“We must assert ourselves strongly to be on the right path towards achieving our lofty dreams for the on-going season.

“And the path to send the right signal across to other top-flights is a convincing victory against Gombe United so that we can comfortably take it up from there to other matches on the calendar,”  the former Heartland and Warri Wolves striker said.
