Dolphin In Tough Visit To Owerri

Globacom Premier League returnee, Dolphin Football Club, is set to face its biggest test since gaining promotion to the top-flight this season when it travels to Owerri to face 2009 CAF Champions League finalist, Heartland Football Club.
Dolphin manager, Stanley Eguma, knows that the trip to the home ground of the Naze Millionaires – the Dan Anyiam Stadium – would be a difficult deal and is banking on the quality in his side to battle with the experienced Heartland FC side.
The visit of the Globacom Premier League newcomer this season is further made difficult with the fact that it would miss the services of two of its players in Abduljelil Ajagun and Omoh Ojabu.
The two players have been excused from this game after taking part in the just-concluded FIFA Under-17 World Cup with Nigeria.
On February 20, 2005 when Dolphin FC visited the Dan Anyiam Stadium while Heartland FC was still known as Iwuanyanwu Nationale, it lost by a lone goal.
Though the current setup at Heartland FC is a different one from that side in 2005, assistant coach of the club, Ben Iroha, in an interview with Naijaligue.blogspot.com said he is optimistic that the team would draw experience from campaigning in the CAF Champions League this year to prosecute its title chase this season.
