Coach Ngozi Elechi confident Go Round will subdue MFM

Following their draw with the Anambra Warriors, the newcomers'' gaffer is upbeat they will silence the Olukoya Boys in Omoku

Ngozi Elechi has expressed high hopes for his Go Round side's wil end their winless run when they confront MFM in a rescheduled Nigerian topflight clash in Omoku on Wednesday.

After their 0-0 draw with FC Ifeanyi Ubah, the top-flight newcomers stayed put in the relegation zone - sitting 18th with 20 points from 18 games, having failed to win in last six outings.

And the gaffer, who is unhappy with his side's struggling form,  has blamed his forwards' profligacy in front of goal for the points dropped in their matches this season, especially at home.

"Honestly, an area we really need to work on is our goalscoring," Elechi told media.

"Against FC Ifeanyi Ubah, we created many chances in the first half and could not from them and the boys were jittery in the second half.

In most of our games, we've had chances of putting ourselves in front and if we don't go one goal up it becomes difficult and we end up drawing or losing.

"This is football and all we need to do is to address some of the areas that are bothering the team, especially scoring. That's a very big concern. We need to put things right against MFM."

Ahead of Wednesday's tie, Elechi reveals they have made some recruitments in a bid to fix their scoring problems and he is upbeat they will subdue Fidelis Ilechukwu's side.

"There is a plan we had about bringing one or two players to rectify our problems of goalscoring. I'm quite impressed with the performance of our defenders and midfielders. It is only in the area of scoring that we need to fix.

"We've brought in two-three players to make sure we strengthen the team for the second round of the season. The players did well except for the attack, where we are trying to work on and I think that most clubs face the same problem.

"We are hoping to put up a good program to train well on improving our scoring and see how we make little changes to get a good result against MFM."
