‘We won’t miss sum­mit op­por­tu­nity’

Daily Trust - - SPORT -

Enugu Rangers cen­tral at­tacker, Edoh Ocheme has said his side will not miss the op­por­tu­nity to take over the top-flight sum­mit against ori­en­tal neigh­bours, Abia War­riors.

The Fly­ing An­telopes will host the War­riors in to­day’s Nige­ria Pro­fes­sional Foot­ball League (NPFL) match­day 26 ori­en­tal derby at the Nnamdi Azikiwe Sta­dium in Enugu.

Both sides shared the spoils in the four goals thriller in first fix­ture clash at the Umuahia Town­ship Sta­dium.

Ocheme said he will not wait to par­take for the first time in the thrills and spills as­so­ci­ated with the ori­en­tal derby clash.

“Of course, we won’t miss the rare op­por­tu­nity to climb to the num­ber one spot on the log, we hope to max­imise the op­por­tu­nity fully when we clash against Abia War­riors on Fri­day in Enugu. I have heard fond sto­ries about the ori­en­tal derby and I won’t wait to par­tic­i­pate in the clash. Part of the sto­ries is that it’s usu­ally dif­fi­cult and tough just like any other lo­cal der­bies in the land.”
