Sodiq Ridwan: Ikorodu Utd can’t afford to drop any further points at home


Ikorodu United dazzler Sodiq Ridwan has revealed that his side can’t afford to slip again at home‎ in the ongoing Nigeria National League.

The Oga boys are hosts of Osun United in Sunday’s NNL Week 25 game at the Teslim Balogun stadium in Lagos.

Ridwan “Alquriani” as he’s fondly called said that his side were faced with familiar opponents and are certain to produce a wonderful and excellent performance in front of their Lagos fans.

“It’s outright victory against Osun United as anything short of the maximum three points will spell doom for us. We are still struggling to stamp our foot on the league, so we cannot afford to make mistake,” he told

“Osun United have never lost in Lagos this season having shared the spoil against other Lagos based teams but our case is different. This is the time we must avenge the first round result. I could remember I was at the stadium as a spectator when Ikorodu United visited Oshogbo ‎and it was a narrow win for the Omoluabi giants then.

“Every hand is on deck to ensure we re-establish ourselves to take our right place and finish on a high in the ongoing NNL season. I think we are firmly prepared to crush Osun United on sunday. Good enough we are faced with familiar foe whom I know virtually all their players very well and have also met‎ with Ikorodu United several times.

“Osun United are no doubt a very good and tough side, so we have steeled ourselves for this tough encounter. I’m so confident we will get it right, aimed at amassing the whole points at stake”, said Sodiq‎ Ridwan to

Ikorodu United are 13th on the NNL Southern Conference table with 28 points from 24 matches. They are a point above the relegation zone. Anything short of victory will put them in danger of facing relegation.
