After providing the shock of matchday 18 with a 0-1 win away at Kano Pillars, Akwa United coach Abdu Maikaba has described Wednesday’s meeting with NPFL table-toppers MFM FC as a “must win” match.
Placed 5th on the table and yet to lose at the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium in Uyo, the Promise Keepers will file out against Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries Football Club in a match day 19 fixture with that proud record on the line against the leaders.
But Maikaba who says he is impressed with the way his side have played this season thinks for Akwa United to achieve their season’s target, a win against MFM FC tomorrow is a must.
“We set a target at the beginning of the season. Although we started badly, but by the grace of God we are now 5th on the table,” Maikaba said to Akwa United media.
“We are impressed with the way we are playing at the moment but we know that the job is not done yet”.
“Our match against MFM is a must win and the three points will take us to a very good position as we will be going into the mid-season break. We have to keep winning our matches both home and away so as to be able to achieve our target”.
