Sunshine Stars right-back Habib Yakub says keeping clean sheets has been the main aim this season.
The Owena Whales have kept six clean sheets in their last eight games, including Saturday afternoon’s 3-0 thrashing of Lobi Stars in the Nigeria Professional Football League.
“All I’m doing here is trying to work extra hard at my game in training, to enjoy playing my football here, he told Lodgexpress.com.
“When we’re getting the wins and scoring goals and keeping clean sheets, it’s always a morale booster for everyone. From my personal perspective, and for the back four including the ‘keeper, maintaining a clean sheet has always been a huge target and we’ve been defensively fantastic in all of our outings so far.
“It’s all about maintaining that momentum from now on. What cleansheets means to us at the backline is what goalscoring means to the boys up front who’re doing the scoring.”
