Enyimba technical adviser Usman Abd’Allah says his side will have to put out perfect performances to stand a chance at the Nigeria Professional Football League playoffs.
Abd’Allah’s side ensured qualification for the six-team tournament on the final day of the NPFL first round, finishing third in group A despite slipping to a 1-2 loss at Katsina United.
While restating the team’s aim of claiming silverware and obtaining a continental ticket at the playoffs, Abd’Allah warns that the group must remain focused on task at hand.
“We have scaled through the first stage of this competition by getting to the super six and now we are in the final stage of the season.
“This is the stage where we have to achieve those two goals we set at the beginning of the season, that’s getting back into the continent and hopefully getting a trophy.
“We will go back and start preparing more because we need to have very good concentration to move on. We have to go back and assemble the team very well, get more focused and train, and then give everything and sacrifice.
“This sacrifice has to come from both sides – from the club, from the management, from the players, from the supporters and also from the coaches so that we can achieve this.
“We are at the final stage and we have to get prepared very well and avoid any mistake. This is a place where we can’t afford any mistake to achieve these goals.”
