Former Niger Tornadoes of Minna defender, Ibrahim Omolayo, has said it will be an emotional home coming when he face his former employer on Wednesday in a Match two Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) encounter.
Omolayo said if he is lucky enough to score against the Ikon Allah on Wednesday, he will not jubilate even as he target a win at the Confluence Stadium, Lokoja.
“It is an emotional home coming, i have a lot of friends here in Lokoja.
“One thing for sure is that I am now an ABSFC player and I must give my best if I am listed in the first eleven tomorrow.
“If I am lucky to be on the score sheet tomorrow, I will not jubilate, just to show respect for the Tornadoes fans,” Omolayo said.
The lanky defender who played more than 30 games for the Ikon Allah last season joined the newly promoted Ilorin based side at the end of last season.
He said he is hoping to make Coach Henry Makinwa’s eleven on Wednesday as he missed out from the opening day fixture.
Omolayo replaced his playing mate at Niger Tornadoes, Abdullahi Ferinyaro, who started the game on Sunday against Akwa United.
Austin Ikpi, who joined from MFM, has also been called to the squad to face Niger Tornadoes after replacing Ibrahim Abdullahi who was an unused substitute on Sunday against Akwa United.
Meanwhile, newly recruited Adeshina Gata, will also be missing for the Saraki Boys as he is yet to recover from the illness he suffered at the weekend, Coach Makinwa has confirmed.
Makinwa said on Tuesday in Lokoja, that he will assess the youngster on Friday to see if he can be in line for the match day three against FC Ifeanyi Ubah on Sunday in Ilorin.
According to the ABS Coach Adeoti Muiz, who is battling a toe injury is still out and will also be assessed by Friday to his progress if he is responding to treatment as expected.
