Enyimba’s unbeaten run in the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) will be intact after Sunday’s Oriental Derby clash against Enugu Rangers, tough-tackling defender Ifeanyi Anaemena has assured.

Prior to Sunday's derby, Anaemena told Goal that he is happy with the extra time his side have to prepare for the crunch clash against the Flying Antelopes.

“The postponement from last weekend has given us more time to prepare and we know what is at stake," Anaemena told Goal.

"With the way things are going, many believe that Rangers have already picked one of the playoff spots so the remaining 11 teams are fighting for the other two slots.

“They say Rangers are good in away games but I believe that the unbeaten run that we have gotten so far in 10 games will not just end at our home…it’s not possible.

“What we want is the three points, we know where we would be once we get it, by the grace of God we will achieve our aim on Sunday.”  

With 25 points from 16 games, Enyimba are just one point ahead of third-placed MFM in Group A of the NPFL.
