NPFL: Tebo Franklin ready for Enyimba



Nasarawa United defender Tebo Franklin has said that while he is happy with the progress of the club so far in the Nigeria Professional Football League season and attention must now turn to Enyimba.

The Solid Miners are currently third on the ladder after 27 matches.

United meet Enyimba on Sunday and occupy the final continental place.

“It has been a great season for us at Nasarawa United,” he told reporters.

“We’ve played to a high level and we are very happy.

“We’ll be confronting Enyimba as though it’s a final. Three points are up for grabs but it’s special because it’s against a tough side who beat us in Lafia. We won’t allow them do a double.

“How can we beat them? By scoring more goals than they do.”

On the subject of the Enyimba game, Tebo insisted it was no more important than any other game in the final part of the season.

“Now every game is a final for us,” he argued.

“The tie in Aba is an important League match since we’re third but nothing will be finished. We’ve prepared very well for this game.”
