Al Masry striker Austin Amutu is upbeat about their chances against Haras El Hodood when they two teams clash in the Egyptian Premier League on Friday.
The club hasn’t won their last four matches in the top flight, thus making them lose ground in the title race.
Amutu is set to feature in his 10th Premier League match of the season when the two sides battle it out for three points at the Egyptian Army Stadium.
The 25-year-old joined the Green Eagles on a free transfer during the January transfer window.
“The team are working really hard to try and end the four-match winless run,” Amutu told Futbalgalore.com.
“I believe we’re on the right path and that we need to continue what we’re doing. All we need is luck.
“Our run of fixtures have been very difficult and it’s certainly not easy to get going.
“The stadium will be full and we need to get a good result. I give everything when I play, both for the fans and to help the team, who I would like to thank.”
After Friday’s big game, Al Masry are set for another huge test when they play against in the Premier League on Wednesday.
“Not long after the Haras El Hodood game we’ll be in Premier League action once again, with this being another opportunity to get a good result,” Amutu added.
The Pharaonic Horus occupy 4th on the league table, 12 places above Haras El Hodood, ahead of Friday’s match.
Amutu has featured nine times for the Green Eagles this season, starting three of those matches and scoring five goals.
Also on the payroll of the club are Emeka Eze and Ezekiel Bassey.
