Dakkada FC’s rock in defense Olawale Doyeni is confident that a victory is possible against Adamawa United at the Pantami Stadium, Gombe in match day 14 of the Nigeria Professional Football League.
However, Doyeni says that is not going to come easy.
“After winning two games consecutively against Kano Pillars and Wikki Tourists, we go into this game with so much confidence that we can get all three points.
“We know that Adamawa United will try to win because they are fighting to go up in the table. We all saw what they did against a big side like Lobi Stars, but we are determined. Our fans should expect the best from us in Gombe”.
Doyeni has featured full time in 12 of Dakkada’s 13 games so far this season. His only absence came in the 3-0 loss to Kwara United in Illorin after he picked up an injury at the match venue prior to the game.
His return has been a boost for the “Chosen Ones” who only narrowly lost to Heartland before their recent comeback wins: 3-2 against Kano Pillars and 2-1 over Wikki Tourists as the team has gotten the tag as comeback kings.
Dakkada are seventh in the NPFL log and a triumph on Sunday could propel them further up in the standings.
