Akwa United striker Orok Akarandut celebrates after scoring his first goal for the club.


Akwa United are confident of going on a wining streak after defeating Rivers United 2-1 in the Nigeria Professional Football League Match day 9 fixture.

This is according to Assistant Coach Abdulahi Umar and striker Orok Akarandut who spoke to DiegwuSports following the nervy win.

Abdulahhi started by revealing that one of the 1st things that new coach Kennedy Boboye did was to set a target of wining 9 points from the next three matches and that the club is on track to archieve that.

‘We set a target of wining our next three matches and after this win against Rivers United we can say its one down and two to go.

‘People keep looking at our position rather than the point difference between us and the teams at the top. We are focusing on the points which is not that much. If we want to get to the top which i know we will get to, we have to pull down those above all starting with Dakkada FC on Subday and then Lobi Stars.’ Abdulahi told DiegwuSports.

On his part, striker Orok Akarandut believes that the players should show more desire and positive character if Akwa United are to go on a wining streak.

Akarandut who scored his 1st goal for Akwa United in the 2-1 win over Rivers United believes that its now up to the players to repay the faith put in them by the management.

‘I believe the time for Akwa United to begin to win has come. All we need to continue to display positive character because the coaches have passed down the information and also their objectives for the club to us the players and before now we go out there on the pitch and we don’t deliver.

‘But against Rivers United we showed so much positive character, if we keep this sought of charactr going, the wins will continue coming.’

Akwa United will next face high flying Dakkada FC in the Ibom derby before facing Lobi Stars in its next two NPFL matches
