Versatile Plateau United centre-back Andrew Ikefe says confidence is surging inside the squad following their 3-1 win over Shooting Stars on Wednesday.
If Rivers United fail to beat sixteen-placed Abia Warriors on Thursday, Plateau United will remain top of the table ahead of their Sunday’s trip to Gombe United, which is then followed by a home game against the league’s defending champions, Akwa United.
“We are top of the table until Thursday. It is good to be there, it gives us a lot of confidence,” the Nigerian defender told Lodgexpress.com.
“We just go by each game. We are aware that our primary target is to remain on top of the league and win the title again and every week we keep on improving.
“If we continue in this same mentality playing as a team I think we will have an excellent season and a positive one also.
“We approach our next two fixtures knowing they are crucial but with a lot of confidence, especially after winning five matches in a row.”
