Akwa United winger, Ubong Friday, was all smiles and in high spirit during his press conference ahead of Matchday 29 clash with Katsina United.
Friday who was visibly delighted going into the fixture, told Lodgexpress sports journalist, Faith Onwukwe;
“Yeah! we’re aware of how crucial this game is to us. It’s sure going to be tough to start with but we’ll be sure to maintain focus and go all out for the win. We will push them really hard and hope they yield.
“In football every team strives for a win. We’ve come really far season and can’t throw away all we’ve fought for since the start of the season. We will play as a team, get our victory and return to Akwa Ibom to continue as league leaders.
“We’re aware of how dangerous they could be when playing at their home soil which was evidenced by their defeat of Enyimba few weeks ago, they showed class and I must commend them for that but the difference here is that no two teams are the same, we are Akwa United and we’ll show them how we do our thing.
“They won’t be with some of their key players like shotstopper, Yusuf and playmaker, Nnoshiri while we on the other end will miss our key trio of Atshimene, Mayi and Ndah but that can’t stop us from still chasing our target and we always keep our promise”
