It has been a very disappointing start to the season by Akwa United and the sacking of John Obuh eight games into the season defined the troubled position the club has found affairs.
After the 2-1 win midweek against Rivers United (their second win of the season) Akwa United seemed poised to go on a winning streak.
Assistant coach Abdullahi Umar and striker Orok Akarandut who spoke to www.npfl.ng following the nervy win, predicted that the rough times are over.
‘We set a target of wining our next three matches and after this win against Rivers United we can say its one down and two to go.
‘People keep looking at our position rather than the point difference between us and the teams at the top.
We are focusing on the points gap which is not that much. If we want to get to the top which i know we will get to, we have to pull down those above all starting with Dakkada FC on Sunday and then Lobi Stars.’ Abdullahi stated.
