Victor Ezeji: Sharks will be surprise winners of the Premier League title

The veteran forward is confident that the Port Harcourt side will pick the League shield following their scintillating 5-2 victory against Gombe United

Sharks striker Victor Ezeji has revealed that his team will be the surprise winners of the Nigeria Premier League title.

Ezeji told Goal.com after getting a brace in the 5-2 demolition of Gombe United on Saturday that the team is gradually working its way to the top of the league table and would remain there to start the battle to win the League shield.

Sharks are presently on the sixth position with 36 points with two games in hand.

"I am confident and it is possible that Sharks will emerge the League champions at the end of the season.

"We are moving up the table and we are going to be the surprise winners of the title because everything is working for us now.

"The fact that nobody gave us a chance is an advantage for us. And it seems nobody has noticed the fact that we are the dark horses moving steadily to the top of the table. But I am sure we can get a continental ticket at the end of this season.

"We may have started this season on a bad patch, but we have consolidated and are ready to push for the title until the end of the season," Ezeji said.
