Following Akwa United’s 2-1 victory over Abia Warriors at the weekend, head coach Kennedy Boboye has hinted that his boys are charged up to record their second win of the season when they engage Kwara United in Ilorin on Wednesday.
Coach Boboye who heaped praises on his players after their first win of the season explained that the victory over his former team was a divine turnaround that his team needed to kick start their campaign.
In an exclusive interview with the club’s official website, www.akwaunitedfc.com Boboye revealed that his team is on course for more victories.
“Our victory over Abia Warriors is a big motivation for us and it’s coming at the right time. We are determined to build on that win as we continue to push for more victories.
“The celebration of that victory ended after the match and our concentration and focus is now on Wednesday’s match against Kwara United.
“Last season, Kwara United came to Uyo and picked all three points. Due to the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic, we didn’t have the opportunity of playing the return fixture, that is why this game is very important and trust me, we are on a special mission to Ilorin.
“It’s interesting to see that teams are picking vital points away from home, and we don’t want to miss out on it. Hopefully, we will pick all three points and record our first away win this season in Ilorin on Wednesday” Boboye concludes.
With one win, one draw and one defeat in their opening three matches, the Promise Keepers are 11th on the NPFL table with 4 points and will take on Kwara United in mid-week on Match-day 4.
In the last eight meetings between the two sides, Akwa United and Kwara United have recorded three wins apiece while two of those encounters ended in a stalemate.
