Focus is key in Nasarawa United relegation fight, says Najeem Olukokun


Najeem Olukokun has charged Nasarawa United to remain focused in their bid to avoid the drop at the end of the season.

Although the Solid Miners are 12th on the log with 29 points, one point separates them from the relegation zone.

The Lafia based side face Enugu Rangers, Go Round, Yobe Stars and Niger Tornadoes in July’s congested fixtures.

However, the 27-year-old is optimistic that his side will avoid the drop if they remain undistracted.

“We know that we are not safe from the relegation fight yet,” Olukokun told NPFL website.

“Our position looks good at the moment but the points difference with teams below us is not very wide as such.

“We still have to work hard and I believe we can help the club to safety at the end of the season

“I have also looked at our matches for July and I must say we have a set of matches coming up. But we must focus first and take things one game after another.

“So we will be focused first on the game against Rangers before the other ones,”
