FC Ifeanyi Ubah’s coach, Yaw Preko is delighted with the return of some of his key players for the tie away at Niger Tornadoes in Lokoja on Sunday.
The players set to return to the fold of the Anambra warriors include, Godwin Obaje who is the leading scorer of the side with 12 goals, Ivorian Import Pascal Seka, tricky winger Prince Aggreh, Chijioke Alaekwe and national team assignment returnees, Stephen Eze and Ikechukwu Ezenwa.
“I had some injuries and some other complaints before the game with Akwa United. Obaje was suspended after accumulating five yellow cards while Alaekwe and Pascal did not feel too well and were rested.”
“We had two of our players in the Eagles’ game with Benin republic last weekend. Aggreh was not also available too. This no doubt depleted our squad but the remaining players got the job done even though it wasn’t easy against Akwa United.” said the former Hearts of Oak of Ghana coach to Goal
“Tornadoes are no easy opponents because their results at home have been very good but I believe that the inclusion of some of our regulars who didn’t make the last game will ensure we are more competitive in Lokoja,” he concluded.
FC Ifeanyi Ubah are placed fifth with 53 points after 35 rounds of matches.
