The Uchendo Warriors defender has set sights on securing maximum points against the table toppers in Umuahia on Sunday

Abia Warriors' Abiodun Adebayo says his side is targeting an outright victory against Plateau United at the Umuahia Township Stadium.

The Uchendu Warriors are smarting from local derby defeat to Enyimba as they welcome Kennedy Boboye's men, who will be returning to face his former employers on Sunday.

And the Abdullahi Biffo's defender insists they gave a good account of themselves against the People's Elephants and he is confident they will crush their visitors.

"It was a local derby, and the game lived up to every expectation and Calabar fans really had worth for their money," Abiodun told Goal.

"We know each other very well, though we lost the game, we left Calabar with our heads high. The most important thing is that the League remains the winner.

"There is no cause for alarm. We are not ignorant of the fact that Plateau United who is the league leaders are in a form of their life.

"We are approaching the match with all seriousness, and with God, all things will work out," he continued.

"We have full respect for Kennedy Boboye who was a former Coach of this club and made his mark. We are fully prepared to host them, and all will be well.

"We know how they play and will approach it equally. There is no cause for alarm. Outright win, that is our target."
