Nasarawa United coach, Kabir Dogo has promised that his boys will come back stronger as he has put in measures to help his team to make the most of the holidays.
The former ABS Ilorin FC coach is assured that his boys will most definitely stun the Tin City side from Jos as he intends to halt the impressive run of Kennedy Boboye-led Plateau United.
“The break is a huge relieve and good for the teams, at least the issue of fatigue will be a thing of the past,” Dogo told SuperSport.
“Of course, we will not allow the players to abuse the rare privilege, training is a routine so we will get the best from the break to ensure we come back to the trenches better and stronger.
“The break is another way of seeing the best of the domestic league and big kudos to LMC.
“Of course, we are aware of the smooth run of Plateau United in the on-going top-flight.
“We have gained five points while Plateau United are at the summit on 13 points.
“Plateau United are good side so also ours and that the side are at the summit at the moment does not mean that they are unstoppable.
“We will stop Plateau United unbeaten run in the on-going top-flight as we need the points more than them.
“Of course, nobody can rightly claim to be the champions right now as the league is still at an elementary stage.
“The clash between both sides have been tough, almost a derby because of the closeness of the states, Nasarawa and Plateau.
“The encounter has always been tough and interesting either in Lafia or Jos.
“We are improving with each match and we hope to further improve in our performance when we face Plateau United on Sunday,” Dogo concluded.
The Solid miners, still licking the wounds of a 2-1 defeat in Calabar, will host high flying Plateau United this weekend in a Matchday six NPFL encounter.
