Kogi United’s combative midfielder, Micheal Bolaji has called for focus from his team mates as they face Yobe Desert Stars in a Matchday 6 clash of Nigeria National League, NNL on Saturday.
The match billed for the August 27 Stadium, Damaturu will be United’s second consecutive league game on the road after their 0-1 defeat against Kaduna United last Sunday.
The Confluence state club would hope to raise their game on Saturday to make a serious statement in the challenge for honours in the ongoing season.
Bolaji who was disappointed with last weekend’s result has however called for renewed determination against a resurgent Yobe Desert Stars who have lost only once in five league games.
“We have a great opportunity tomorrow to show a reaction,” he said.
“It’s painful we lost the last game (against Kaduna United) but we need to forget that and forge ahead, we are here now and we need to show that we’ve corrected our mistakes from the last game.
“We know and believe in our confidence, we are a team with very talented players, we know it’s going to be tough but we are ready to give it our all”.
“Yobe Stars have been impressive this season and their results have been surprising but that’s how the game is, a club can spring up and get a good run, it’s working for them now but we will work to put a halt to that here and use it to begin our own good run,” said the combative midfielder.
