“This award will make me want to do more for the club and I won’t be tired until we secure our place in the premier league ahead of next season. The results have not been impressive in recent games but we are delighted to break the chain of defeats with our home win against Nasarawa United.

“We shall be going to Port Harcourt with optimism that we can secure important points against Rivers United. They are also a good side and we shall go with caution knowing that we can’t afford not to be careful.
