The Enyimba football club of Aba will today host Remo Stars football club at its adopted home ground, the U.J Esuene Stadium in Calabar, the Cross River State capital on match day 19 of the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL).
The People’s Elephant who are 7th on the NPFL log with 35 points after 18 games will hope to continue their unbeaten run at home when Remo stars who are 19th on the log with 19 points after 17 games come visiting before the stanza one of the NPFL season ends.
The Sky Blue Stars skipper, Victor Mbaoma who boasts 7 goals in the season so far told Goal.com that all hope is not lost as they hope to shock the two time African champions.
“The situation is not funny at all for us because of our present position but we are doing everything possible to swim out of the relegation zone.
”Our course is not helped at all with our double away games remaining before the end of the first round. We are going to Calabar to try the resolve of Enyimba and they will be sorry if they take us for granted.
“We are down but not out and we are going to Calabar to see the possibility of picking a positive result because another loss won’t be good for our aspirations to leave the relegation zone,” Mbaoma said.
The match is slated for 4:00 PM local time.
