Sharks Won’t Go On Relegation, Assures Ejike

One of Sharks Football Club’s top scorers in the ongoing season, Bright Ejike, is confident that the Blue Angels would not suffer the fate of dropping from the Premier League to the National Division I League at the end of the season.
Ejike, who was with Enyimba, during the Super Four pre-season tournament in Ilorin before he moved to Sharks FC on loan for the rest of the season, pointed out that the initial blip experienced by the Port Harcourt side has been banished following three consecutive wins in November and December of last year in the top-flight.
“It was not a good start for us this season because we did not win any match in our first eight games. But we have improved our position on the table by winning our last three games and we have moved away from the bottom and into 18th position though we are still in the relegation zone. I believe that Sharks will not go on relegation at the end of the season because we have a very good team with experienced players.
“Really we didn’t have any problem, it was just that the results did not come and we lost two games at home and that was when started feeling the pressure. I think we put the pressure on ourselves. But now that we have won three straight games, we want to build on that and do well till the end of the season,” Ejike, who has scored three times for the Blue Angels this season, told Naijaligue.blogspot.com.
But the club’s next two games are away to Ocean Boys and Kwara United before it returns to the Liberation Stadium in Port Harcourt to play host to Zamfara United on January 17.
The Blue Angels is yet to win an away game in five but has picked two points and the left-footed striker is unperturbed by that record saying that surprises can happen on the road trips to Ocean Boys and Kwara United.
“In football anything can happen. We can go to Ocean Boys and Kwara United and win against them. But the most important thing for us is to ensure that we don’t lose to them so as to improve our position on the table,” he said.
The petite forward, who can also play as a winger, promised that he would help play a part in ensuring that Sharks FC remains in the top-flight if it would cost him an arm or a leg.
