Newly promoted side, Remo Stars eye NPFL win

By Femi Adefioye, Lagos
Coach of newly promoted side, Remo Stars, Daniel Ogunmodede has said his side are poised to grab their first home victory in the ongoing Nigerian top-flight.
The Sky Blue Stars will host Abia Warriors in Sunday’s Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) match day 3 clash at the Gateway Stadium in Sagamu.
Ogunmodede said that after back to back defeats to Plateau United and Gombe United, time is ripe to announce themselves in their debuting top-flight campaign.
“Winning the first home game in the top-flight is uppermost on our minds after two successive defeats. What we want mostly is the whole three points in the clash against Abia Warriors.
“We know that Abia Warriors will not come cheap. We have gone the extra mile to train hard for the clash to ensure we get it right with three points in our kitty after football hostility.
“Although, nobody has spoken harshly over the two losses, but personally the defeats have posed serious challenge to us. We want to put to an end the series of losses to assert our footprint strongly in the top-flight.
“There is nothing spectacular in the matches we played in the top-flight, except the results have been unfair, but we are determined to change the poor results starting with the clash against Abia Warriors,” said Ogunmodede to
Remo Stars have lost their two top-flight matches to Plateau United and Gombe United with similar 2-1 score lines while the Umuahia Warriors have been clinical, maintaining their 100% record in their two matches so far.
