Iorfa, Tyavkase optimistic Lobi Stars will beat Sharks in Federation Cup quarter finals

The captain and vice chairman of the Makurdi based side are both confident they will see off Sharks in the quarter finals of the Federation Cup
Ahead of their Federation Cup quarter final game against Sharks, Lobi Stars boss Dominic Iorfa and skipper David Tyavkase have jointly agreed that it is not going to be a tea party but declared there will be no hiding place for the 'big fish' at the Abubakar Tafawa Balewa stadium, Bauchi.

Speaking from their Zaranda hotel abode in Bauchi, both said it's now a case of "the harder they come, the harder they fall".

 According to ex-international Iorfa, "Sharks can't survive in the savanah lands of Bauchi".

Lobi Stars beat Enyimba and Samba of Enugu in Bauchi centre to reach the quarter finals where they play Sharks of Port-Harcourt in Bauchi on Monday.

"I am not underrating the team from Port-Harcourt, but I am so sure that my boys will make me proud. They have been playing so well and have improved with every game.

"So I am expecting an outright victory against Sharks," Iorfa said.

 Lobi Stars captain David Tyavkase noted that they have come a long way and cannot falter at this time.

"We are looking beyond Sharks challenge because we have not only Sharks number but we can decode them. We have been playing very well and in a rich form of late which will help us.

"We are determined to make our supporters happy and this is one match we want to win" said the experienced Tyavkase.

Lobi Stars came out tops in Bauchi center after defeating Samba and Enyimba to garner six points.
