FC Ifeanyi Ubah head coach, Uche Okagbue has recalled how the media doubted his team at the beginning of the season.
Some Nigerian journalists doubted the ambition of the Anambra Warriors to compete in the wake of the exodus to their top players.
Ifeanyi Ubah are currently placed second on the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) Group B standings - a point behind the leaders, El Kanemi.
“I told journalists at the beginning of the season that my team is work in progress," Okagbue said on the NPFL webisite.
"We are making use of talented but young players who are ready to ensure that FC Ifeanyiubah become a breeding ground for other clubs within and outside Nigeria to sign players.”
The Ifeanyi Ubah coach reiterated the determination of the Nnewi club to make it to the playoff and that they will continue to work their socks off to ensure that they are among the six competing teams at the end of the regular season.
“We are doing everything possible to ensure that we pick one of the six slots to the playoffs. We are going to do our best in Lafia which is our next destination.
"It was a close win in Nnewi and we know that Nasarawa United will be tough before their fans,” said Okagbue.
