Rivers United striker, Maduabuchi Okereke has voiced his sentiments following his side’s 0-0 draw with FC Ifeanyiubah in Wednesday’s Nigeria Professional Football Legue (NPFL) clash in Nnewi.
The forward who was a second half substitute put in a lively display as the Pride of Rivers settled for a share of the spoils with the Anambra Warriors.
Maduabuchi, who was on the books of FCIU last season, has now taken the time to reflect on the result from a very hard-fought contest against his former employers.
“I am so excited to have helped Rivers United get a point against FCIU.
“It was not an easy game and I am so happy we go home with a very good point,” he told www.riversunitedfc.com.ng.
United will now prepare to face Lobi Stars in Port Harcourt on Sunday as the NPFL enters match day five.
With the games coming thick and fast, Okereke insists the United stars must not allow their level drop on Sunday.
“Lobi Stars have some of the best players in the league. Their coach (Godwin Uwua) is very experienced too so we must be well prepared.
“We have started very well but we can do more,” he said.
Rivers United have amassed eight points out of a possible 12 and currently sit in second place on the NPFL standings, two points adrift of the leaders, Plateau United.
