Yobe Desert Stars’ Paul Godwin has stated that they are not afraid of Plateau United whom they trade tackles with on Wednesday in a rescheduled league game at the New Jos Stadium.

Godwin and his teammates lost their unbeaten home record last weekend when they were held to a 1-1 draw by Enyimba but the goalkeeper said he is confident of a good result in Jos to augment the ones they lost at home to the People’s Elephant.

“It was not a good match for us against Enyimba and we must try not to repeat such against Plateau United on Wednesday,” Godwin told Goal.

“We must face Plateau United without fear and even though they remain the only team that has not dropped a point at home this season, we should have the believe that we can be the first team to stop them.

“Our coach (Mohammed Babaganaru) told us what we didn’t do well against Enyimba and what we must do to ensure that we get at least a draw in our game with Plateau United. We have fixed our sights on the game since last weekend and we are not ready to disappoint ourselves.”

The former Sunshine Stars and Enyimba goalkeeper also hinted that they would be facing Plateau United at the right time when they are struggling in the league having lost their last two away matches and that they will be doing their season a lot of good if they could capitallise on Wednesday evening.

“We are aware that Plateau United are not in their best shape with the way they were beaten in their last two games. This game has presented us with an opportunity to hurt them the more.

“It is a good chance for us to pick a decent result that will ensure we maintain our league spot if we can’t go further up at the end of the game,” he stressed.
