Daily Trust - - SPORT - Do­tun Omisakin, Lagos

The Moun­tain of Fire and Mir­a­cles (MFM) FC coach Fidelis Ilechukwu has said that the Lagos-based Nige­ria Pro­fes­sional Foot­ball League out­fit could be­come the first to beat El-Kanemi War­riors in Maiduguri when the two teams clash in to­day’s week 26 tie.

Ilechukwu, who was speak­ing ahead of to­day’s match, how­ever ad­mit­ted that it would be tough run­ning away with the three max­i­mum points in Maiduguri, con­sid­er­ing no vis­it­ing team has earned all three points from that sta­dium.

Fidelis, who heaved a sigh of relief on Sun­day af­ter his wards’ vic­tory over Iko­rodu United, said that there is noth­ing im­pos­si­ble when it comes to foot­ball.

“Have any team won against El-Kanemi War­riors of Maiduguri in that place? May be MFM will be the first team, it is pos­si­ble,” he said.

The tac­ti­cian blamed the team’s poor run in the on­go­ing league sea­son on in­ex­pe­ri­ence, say­ing “the team is a clus­ter of grass­roots play­ers and few ex­pe­ri­enced ones.”

The first meet­ing be­tween the two teams at Agege Sta­dium in the first stanza of the league ended 3-1 in favour of the Lagos side.
