Remo Stars’ goalkeeper, Fabiyi Emmanuel is determined to keep a clean sheet when his team faces one of Nigeria’s most successful clubs, Enyimba this weekend.
The Sky Blue Stars are guests of the seven-time Nigerian league champions, Enyimba on Sunday at the Enyimba Township Stadium Aba, as the Nigeria Professional Football League enters match day eight.
The People’s Elephant won all two encounters between both sides two seasons ago. The Sky Blue Stars are still not enjoying life in the NPFL after returning from the Nigeria National League (NNL) and they are now tasked to turn things around by ensuring they get something when they face the two-time African Champions.
Enyimba have amassed seven points from six games while the visitors, Remo Stars FC have five points from six games and are currently eleventh on Group A table.
“Our game against Enyimba International is not going to be an easy one, we are in a very tight situation and we presently have no choice than to turn the table around on Sunday.
The People’s Elephant are a good side, I played with them eleven years ago and I have given myself the challenge to ensure I keep a clean sheet against them.” Fabiyi assured.
Five out of our current squad (Tayo Adebogun, Aloma Idris, Olufemi Oladapo and Ayo Saka alongside Fabiyi Emmanuel) have all played for Enyimba between 2008 and 2017 and are ready to do the unthinkable if they are selected for a return to the Enyimba Township Stadium on Sunday.
“This Sunday’s match is very important to us and we have given ourselves the responsibility to get something from Aba if we are given the opportunity because we need the result more.” The five of them told RSFC Media.
