Sunshine Stars host an in form Lobi Stars FC, who are also table toppers on Match day 19 and striker Sikiru Alimi, hopes they can end Lobi stars good run.
Lobi Stars are unbeaten in their last 4 NPFL games and have Kept clean sheets in 2 previous games, one reason they have maintained the top position for some time now.
Ahead of that game, Sikiru Alimi in a chat with Naijafootballplus.com looks back to the Matchday 18 loss to Akwa United and speaks on how they hope to bounce back from the defeat.
“It was a great game against Akwa last weekend, we deserved a point in that game, but we were unlucky to have lost at the last minute,” said Alimi.
“We are really pressing for vital points away, the only way we can overcome this run and leave the relegation zone, but I know with some beefed up squad in the second round of the season, we will get things right.”
Lobi Stars are surprise league leaders at this stage of the season, a position which has been aided by a good form away from home.
Alimi is however hopeful Sunshine can stop the Makurdi side’s fine run of form.
“Lobi Stars is a great team with lots of talents and experience, but we really need the points more than they do, so we are going all out for it.
“Despite their form on the road, I am hopeful we will stop them tomorrow,” said Alimi.
Sunshine are placed 16th on the league table with 20 points, just a spot and point above the drop zone.
