Go Round's Nelsor Ezor believes his team can upset the Federation Cup champions Akwa United when both sides meet in a Nigerian top-flight encounter in Uyo.

Prior to Wednesday's clash at the Godswill Akpabio Stadium, the new boys had defeated the Promise Keepers in their first ever top-flight meeting back in January through Adelani Adeseun's first-half strike.

"Akwa United are like any other team in the league, though they have a lot of quality players I believe we still have a chance to get something against them in Uyo if we play with great determination and team spirit.

"We defeated them at the early start of the season and we are capable of doing it again. They underrated us in the first leg in Omoku and we gave them a big surprise. We have a better team now and are ready to shock them at home."

Before Akwa's tie, Go Round are 17th on the log with 26 points from 21 games and would hope for at least a point to move them out of the drop zone.
