"They are definitely out of the tie with Enyimba but we have players that can get us the three points against our foes. The point we earned in Shagamu was justified and I can’t blame my players for the goal we conceded immediately after we took the lead against Remo Stars.

“They (Remo Stars) scored through a fine free kick and I can’t call that a tactical error. We must think about the game with Enyimba knowing that a win could take us further up the league table."

The Nnewi based side are sixth on the league table with 42 points from 28 matches.
