“I must confess that we have been unlucky, we play good football but results have not been coming to show for our hard work.
“However, starting with the clash against FC IfeanyiUbah our fortune is certain to change for the best.
“The oriental clash will become the turnaround we have looking for all this while in the top-flight.
“FCIU are good side despite not being able to get a deserving results in their matches and will come out here to give us a tough match but I know for sure that we will smile at the end of proceedings.
“We are not negotiating the whole three points at stake with anyone not even FCIU,” said the former Heartland and Warri Wolves goal poacher to supersport.com.
The six-time Nigerian champions are 12th on the 20-team top-flight on 15 points 10 behind leaders, Plateau United with a match at hand against the Anambra Warriors.
