Stanley Eguma dismisses Prime FC threat

The Pride of Rivers gaffer has declared his team’s dream of reaching the Federation Cup final will not be dashed by the Omoluabi boys on Thursday
Dolphinshead coach Stanley Eguma has reiterated his side’s determination to reach their fifth Federation Cup final at the expense of Prime FC in Abuja on Thursday.

Dolphins proved that their impressive Federation Cup run was no fluke as they handed title holders Kano Pillars their first defeat in eleven consecutive league games thanks to Emem Edouk's solitary effort in Port Harcourt on Sunday.

Eguma said that the second-tier league campaigners Prime FC will not stand in the way of his side's ambition for a fifth trophy of the national football competition.

“We are working hard for victory and we do not see Prime as one that will stop our road to the final,” Eguma said.

He also expressed his delight over their victory over Pillars , though admitted he was not satisfied with the display of his players.

“We played, we scored a good goal and we won the game. The players did well and we are happy with the win, but not impressive enough,” Eguma said.

It will be Dolphins' sixth appearances in the Federation Cup semi-final which they have only lost once in a 4-1 defeat to Plateau United in 1993.

Dolphins are placed 7th on the NPFL table with 30 points from 20 games and will be hoping to avoid an upset in Federation Cup semi-final game against Prime FC.
