Enyimba’s Okorom asks for more, wants another three points in Gombe


Babale Coper, a fan in Gombe, welcomed Abd’Allah with this banner as we trained at the Pantami.

Like an insatiable elephant, Enyimba of Aba’s right back, Stanley Okorom will not rest until his team collects another three points in the Nigerian Professional Football League (NPFL) when they meet Wikki Tourists in Bauchi today.

Enyimba broke their winless streak by defeating Rivers United 2-0 last weekend in Aba to climb to the fourth position on the NPFL Group A log.

But the Peoples Elephant have not recorded any away point in their five matches so far, and that is the situation Okorom wants to correct today.


He told Enyimba media, “Our last game against Rivers United came with so much pressure because we were on a poor run. It is easier when you come into a match without that kind of pressure, that is why I appreciate the fans for their support.

“Now we have to start picking away points. If we are able to win away, we will be more confident when we return to play at home.”

“Away games are very important in the Nigerian league. When you get your away three points and maybe pocket your home games, you will see yourself being on top. 

“But whenever you lose away it will be a lot of pressure on the home match because you will do everything to win. If you win away you come back home with a lot of confidence, so we need to win away.

“I know that tomorrow (Thursday) it’s going to be our victory. With the calibre of players we have, I know we are going to win tomorrow.”

Enyimba currently occupy fourth position in Group A with seven points gathered from five matches.
