The duo of Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries Football Club strikers, Olatunbosun Sikiru and Adegboyega Adekunle are seeking for their first away victory of the season against Shooting Stars Sports Club (3SC) this midweek in Ibadan.
MFM FC are guests to the Oluyole Warriors at the Lekan Salami Stadium, Adamsingba in Wednesday’s Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) MatchDay 3 clash tagged the ‘Southwest Derby.’
Olatunbosun and Adekunle who have been instrumental for MFM FC in the ongoing Nigerian top-flight scoring a goal each and creating three assists said they are ready to fight for their first ever NPFL away win against the Ibadan-based outfit.
Sikiru said: “An interesting game awaits us in Ibadan, it will not be an easy one but then we have to do everything within our reach to at least have a share of the three points.
“We didn’t have it good last season against Shooting but this term we want to prove to people that we can beat 3SC,” the skillful left-winger stated.
The Lagos-based outfit failed to record a point last season in the Southwest Derby but Adegboyega believes his side is capable of putting an end to the winless streaks against Shooting Stars.
“Our eyes are set on the three points, Shooting Stars have been having the edge over us in the NPFL. We understand the fact that it’s a derby game and they will want to make some statements in front of their home fans but we are not perturbed.
“An outright victory is all we are gunning for, we have a squad capable of inflicting defeat on any team in the league and 3SC are not exempted.
“The fact that they lost their two consecutive away games will put them under pressure. All we need to do is to contain them and take our chances,” he concluded
Coach Fidelis Ilechukwu and his charges have amassed six points from three NPFL matches this season.
