Akwa United head coach, Deji Ayeni is upbeat on the chances of his wards in Sunday’s Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) matchday three encounter against their hosts Nasarawa United.
The Promise Keepers are yet to record a win in the NPFL this season.
Ayeni’s side lost 2-0 to newcomers, Bendel Insurance on the opening day and held eight-time champions, Enyimba to a 0-0 draw in midweek.
The Uyo club failed to hit the target in the two games despite creating a number of goal-scoring chances.
The gaffer, however, believes things will be better for his team this time around at the New Jos Stadium.
“It’s unbelievable that we are yet to score after two matches. We have done a lot of scoring drills and our team is such that any player can score at any time,”Ayeni told the official Akwa United website.
“I’m optimistic that we will utilize our chances come Sunday and we will celebrate our goals’’
