"We are happy resuming the second round with our first win away against Remo Stars," Leonard told Goal .

"We hope to build on our success against Remo when we face Sunshine Stars in Akure. As a team, we won't get carried away by the away win but focused on recovering our lost points.

"The best of Enyimba is yet to come. We are working together as a team and hope to pick maximum points or at least a draw against Sunshine. We hope to compound their woes at home.

"Personally, I hope to keep working hard to justify my starting place in the team. My goal against Remo Stars has given me a confidence boost.

"It was an important and timely goal for me and the team. I'm determined to give my best and score more goals to help the team's ambition this season," he concluded.
