The Olukoya Boys' goalkeeper is optimistic that they can secure a vital result in Calabar against the People Elephants on Wednesday

Ahead of Wednesday's clash with Enyimba, MFM goalkeeper Egbe is confident that they will gain an away result at the UJ Esuene Stadium in Calabar.

Having secured a 2-1 comeback win over Katsina United last Sunday, the Olukoya Boys would target bringing an end to their barren run away this season against the People Elephants.

Enyimba, though picked their fifth away points at Yobe Desert Stars last Sunday, Egbe is unmoved by the achievement of Paul Aigbogun's men as he expects a 'tough' encounter.

"We are in Calabar for the big game against Enyimba and we are fully prepared for it," Egbe told Goal.

"It is an important match for us, just like it is for Enyimba. I don't want to say much about the game but I know fully well that it is going to be a good and tough match.

"We are not scared of Enyimba in any way, though I know that they are a good side and will be difficult to beat at home.

"It will not be easy for us winning but I think we have a chance and we are good to go. We are yet to get an away point this season and this is a good opportunity for us.

"I believe that we can pull a surprise here. We have respect for them and are fully aware of their form this season. But we are also not doing badly at the moment.

"Our home win against Katsina United gave us a lot of confidence and we just need to keep working hard as a team. We are here to fight for the three points."

A draw in Calabar would see Fidelis Ilechukwu's men climb into the Nigeria Professional Football League top four.
