Rivers United lynchpin, Joseph Onoja has reacted to his side’s big test against Nasarawa United.
With both teams gunning for the trophy this season, Nasarawa United sits second on the log with 49 points from 28 games with visitors Rivers United occupying the fourth with 48 points from same number of matches played.
And Onoja who has rejuvenated his career so far this season under Stanley Eguma’s tutelage, told Lodgexpress sports journalist, Faith Onwukwe during his pre-game presser;
“The entire squad at the moment are all fired up and ready to roll later today. The only obstacle keeping us from our title hopes is Nasarawa United and we won’t allow them ruin our chances despite the fact that the both teams are chasing after the same spot.
“We come into this fixure all motivated after we saw off Katsina United last week. This is a very critical stage of the league and every team wants to win their games both home and away.
“No team is a pushover at this time and here in Lafia, its a win for us”.
Onoja’s spectacular goal against Kwara United stills tops the chart for potential goal of the season after he scored from an impossible position.
