Go Round still have the advantage
General Manager of Go Round FC, Soni Uboh believes the club still has the advantage in the promotion race.
The Omoku-based side is currently standing in 3rd place on the log behind Heartland and Delta Force but Uboh said they have the edge.
“We have the advantage of having more home games in this second round than our rivals.
“Remember we have 100 per cent home record, which is not by fluke but by hard work,” Uboh said.
He added that the team is not just banking on winning at home but also on the road too.
“Of our away games, we know Heartland will be difficult but we are hopeful of getting something from the other road trips at Abia Comets, Nnewi United, My People FC and Papilo FC.
“We plan to win three out of the remaining five away games and believe that alone can land us in the NPFL.’’
He recognised the fact that the dynamics have changed since the league entered its second round, but the club would rise above all to achieve their promotion expectations.
“In spite of scheming and intrigues in the second round, we still have the edge over other rivals aside Heartland.
“We are not distracted by schemes from other clubs. We understand what is happening but we believe we will make it to the NPFL next season,’’ Uboh enthused. ##
