Rivers United must be prepared for a tough game against Wikki Tourists in today’s NPFL Super 4 clash, according to coach Stanley Eguma.
United’s game against Wikki Tourists will kick off at 5pm, while Rangers and FC IfeanyiUbah go toe-to-toe from 7pm.
Both games will be played at the Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium in Enugu.
Eguma said Wikki are a tactically-astute unit, teeming with gifted individual talent.
United will finish above Wikki in the tournament standings with a win, but Eguma said it will be difficult to achieve that.
“I have watched the first two matches played by Wikki Tourists in the Super 4 and even though they have a new coach, (Mohammed Babaganaru), it is quite clear that it is a very good team,” said the coach.
“The manner of their victory over FC IfeanyiUbah was very impressive and to hold Rangers to a draw was also commendable.
“The team’s tactics are very good and they have very good players.
"My players must give this their all and play with maximum concentration because I honestly believe this will be our most difficult match in the competition.”
