NPFL: Uwah threatens max force against Rivers Utd

Ahead of Sunday’s NPFL match day five clash, Coach of Lobi Stars FC of Makurdi, Godwin Uwah, has sent strong words to host Rivers United, threatening that they are coming to Port Harcourt to harvest maximum points or at worst drag a draw.

Lobi Stars are away to Rivers United in Port Harcourt fir the encounter and Uwa says they know just what they want and are determined to get it no matter what Rivers does.

“Football is not (mathematics) and I am sure that if we deploy our tactics to perfection, I am sure we will get what we want.

“We know that Rivers United is a good side that will represent Nigeria on the continent.

“We lost out narrowly from qualifying for (either of Caf’s inter-club competitions) last season and we want to correct that this time around.

“We also believe that Rivers United cannot remain unbeaten; if they can get draws on the road and beat opponents at home, we can also inflict defeat on them as well.

“We are coming to Port Harcourt to do what we know best and we believe that at the end of the day, we will be victorious,” he told

However, Rivers United coach, Stanley Eguma, on his part says his objective is to win the game fair and square, revealing that he has been keeping tabs on the opposition since the season commenced.

“My plan is to win. I know they have a very strong team.

“I have been following their performances in the league and the plan is to attack from the first whistle as we need to win the match,” he said.
