FC ifeanyi Ubah defender, Adeleye Olamilekan has disclosed to naijafootballplus.com ahead of their crunch tie against El-Kanemi Warriors of Maiduguri that all NPFL games are ‘dangerous’ now that the season is nearing it’s completion.
The former Bayelsa United defender opined that the teams in the top flight this season have gone gaga in their quest to avoiding relegation, picking a continental tickets and or clinching a title at the end of the season.
“Regardless of a team’s status, each top flight encounter now till the end of the season will presents itself as a potential danger and how each team managing situation is the key and will determine their fate at the of the current season.
“At the top level like this, teams will suffer if they can’t maintain their switching momentum. There are bad days and good days for every team. When you go off day, you must bounce back immediately to catch up or end the season struggling”, Adeleye told NaijaFootballPlus.
“We have learned a lot of things in the last couple of months of this season, that Nigeria Professional Football League has really changed, that every single game pose a big threat and potential danger for any team and the recent results made it obvious. When you look back and see teams like champion, Rangers International FC, last season runner-up, Rivers United and Wikki Tourists, 3rd placed team last season, then you will understand that the league has taken a new dimension.
“Every team who are favourites today are on their toes because they understand that every game now is a potential danger. I hope El-Kanemi Warriors will not understand that before we play them on sunday so that we can capitalise on their flop and flog them in their backyard. It won’t be an easy task but it’s quiet achievable”, said Adeleye to naijafootballplus.com
