Sharks Begins Climb Of Mount Everest

Before its 2 – 0 win over Kano Pillars on December 23 at the Liberation Stadium, Sharks Football Club moved away from being called the basement boys to relegation fighters, but the club knows that the climb out of the woods has just started.
During the week, took a look at the fixtures of Sharks, as the Premier League resumes this weekend and it is beginning to look like a climb of Mount Everest for the Blue Angels.
On Sunday, Sharks makes the short trip from Port Harcourt to Yenagoa to face Ocean Boys, which is yet to lose any game at home this season before going to Ilorin to face Kwara United three days later in a tricky encounter.
But the club’s captain, Odinga Odinga, admitted to that the trips to Ocean Boys and Kwara United are going to be a test of the team’s newfound confidence in the wake of three straight wins before the league went on a two-week break
He also believes that Sharks can swim its way out of relegation waters before the league reaches half-way mark.
Odinga added that the Blue Angels wants to confront each opponent one after the other rather than disturb itself with games that are still yet to be played.
“The game against Ocean Boys is the first game we want to play before we start thinking of that of Kwara United. There are no longer easy football games in the league and there are no longer win-at-home at all costs as it used to be in the past. So we are going to Ocean Boys with the mindset of winning games,” he said.
Sharks’ marksman, Victor Ezeji, also reiterated that the group of players at the club is ready to ensure that the Blue Angels climb to the top half of the Premier League log before the season reaches half-way mark.
“It has been a difficult season for us, but we have put the events of the past year behind and want to start on a new note by winning games for our club and making sure that we climb into the top 10 of the league table before the first half of the season,” Ezeji said.
