And Walbe is upbeat about their chances against Gbenga Ogunbote's side, who they intend according a little respect to.

"We don't want to even look at names or teams we just want to take every game [as it comes]," Walbe told Goal.

"We do not want to see their [Enyimba's] face or club or any name.

"[The game against Enyimba] is very important because we need the three points. [And] if we get the three points it is going to boost our morale. It will help us in acquiring more points.

"And the team ahead of us [Wikki Tourists] have 21 points so when we get our three points [with an unfavourable result to them] we will be on 22 points and ahead of them.''

"From there we start boosting and moving. It's very very important for that we get the three points,'' he continued.

Remo Stars are keen on avoiding relegation as they currently lead the log from behind, with 19 points from as many games.

And on how they intend to survive the drop, the goalkeeper maps it out, saying: "Our home games, we win and get the maximum points and move on.

"We just want to repeat the cycle of getting a win at home, away, try to get some points and continuously." he concluded.
