Rivers United have been handed a massive boost ahead of Sunday’s match day 13 Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) game against Plateau United.
This follows the news that Ivoirian striker, Kuy Kuemian Venance is fit again.
Kuemian has not played for United since April 10 when he suffered a strain of the left quadriceps in the club’s 1-2 defeat to Heartland at the Dan Anyiam Stadium, Owerri.
The former Leones Vegetarianos man duly missed out on the club’s 1-0 win over Kano Pillars in Port Harcourt on April 17 but has now been passed fit to return against Plateau United this weekend.
“The doctor (Chukwuemeka Agi) asked him to stay away from training for a week and he duly complied.
“He is available for selection for the next game against Plateau United in Jos.
Kuemian made his debut for Rivers United in the club’s 1-2 defeat to MFM FC in Lagos on February 24 and did not miss a single game until he strained his quadriceps in Owerri.
He scored arguably the club’s most important goal in the league this season-an injury time winner in the match day five NPFL clash against Nasarawa United in Port Harcourt on March 6.
