Sunshine Stars Coach Duke Udi has described his side’s Aiteo Cup semifinal clash with 2015 Champions of the defunct Federation Cup Akwa United as one that will be very entertaining and interesting.
The Akure gunners will host the Promise Keepers in Saturday’s Aiteo Cup semifinal first leg clash at the Dipo Dina International Stadium in Ijebu Ode.
The former Shooting Stars midfielder said the opponents are a good side but his side is also good enough to come out victorious at the end of the day.
“Of course, if you want to be champions you must be ready to confront the best. We are damn prepared to face Akwa United.
“We do not fear any side, Akwa United inclusive. They have gone past four stiff matches to get to the semis. We too have equally gone past four previous opponents so both sides are evenly matched to go into the semifinals clash.
“Akwa United are a good side. we are also a good side so the clash is outright the battle of the best sides and I strongly believe we will have a convincing head start in the two-legged encounter on Saturday in Ijebu Ode.
“We are ready for them and the clash is sure going to be entertaining and interesting as well.” The former Osun United Boss told Supersport
The second leg will be held on Wednesday, October 4 at the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium in Uyo
