With the Nigerian top flight league, NPFL gradually winding down, Abia Warriors player, Adebayo Abiodun has expressed optimism that his side would beat the drop.
In a chat with Sports247, Adebayo said that they would battle to get maximum 6 points from the final 2 home matches while hoping to claim a point in the away fixture with just 3 matches to the end of the season.
“I am optimistic that we would escape relegation because we are on 24 points and we still have 3 matches to go. So if we can get 6 points from our home matches then we can get at least a draw with akwa united to escape relegation. I am optimistic, very sure that we would escape the drop”
Asked what has changed in the Abia Warriors settings, Adebayo said it was just the mentality and zeal.
“Nothing really changed because we are still playing with the same set of players and same team. The only thing that i can say has changed is the winning mentality, the zeal and urge for victory. The new coach has a way of motivating players to win.”
Abia Warriors are 10th on the log after 19 matches and would be hoping teams like Plateau united, hearland FC and Go Round FC slip up to aid their quest to beat relegation.
