Niger Tornadoes defender, Andrew Ikefe says his side will not gamble with securing all three points against FC IfeanyiUbah on Sunday.

Upon adisappointing away league defeats at Akwa United and Sunshine Stars, the Ikon Allah are looking to avoid falling into the drop zone with three games to go.

"It has been disappointing for losing two [league] matches in a row," Ikefe told Goal.

"Our defeat to Akwa United was terrible but we had a good outing in the Federation Cup against El Kanemi Warriors and that gave us some confidence.

"Though we lost at Sunshine Stars, we gave a good account of ourselves and even score a goal in the match," he continued.
