The Chanji Boys’ forward is confident that his teammates can secure a positive result in Port Harcourt even in his absence

Katsina United’s striker, Chinedu Udechukwu is optimistic that the Chanji Boys can overcome the odds in Port Harcourt and add further misery on Rivers United’s season when they trade tackles on Sunday in a league tie.

Udechukwu will be missing in action just like it was in their last home match against ABS due to a hamstring complaint but the striker disclosed that he is confident his teammates will get the job done and pick valuable points at the Yakubu Gowon Stadium this weekend.

“It was a disappointing result we had at home in our last game against ABS. we expected to pick the three points but were unable to because we underrated them after our fine display against FC Ifeanyiubah a week earlier. The game against Rivers United is a difficult one but we must go with confidence that we can get a result,” Udechukwu told Goal.

“The home draw against ABS has put is in a dicey situation and only a positive result against Rivers United will keep us out of the relegation zone. I won’t be present because of injury and a couple of others too but we trust those that will play to fight with all they have got.

“My hamstring injury has improved seriously but I was told that I must continue to rest. I have restricted myself to only light training and hopefully, I should be able to train with the team by the time they return from Port Harcourt.”

Udechukwu has scored five goals for the Chanji Boys in the league this season to keep them out of the drop zone as they are currently 14th on the log with 42 points from 32 matches.
