Ezeji, Odinga Sure Of Sharks’ Survival

Following the 2 – 0 win over Wikki Tourist at the weekend in Port Harcourt, Sharks Football Club is optimistic that it would avoid dropping from the Premier League to the National Division IA.
Experienced striker of the club, Victor Ezeji, told that after climbing out of the relegation zone for the first time this season, he is certain that the Blue Angels can retain its top-flight status.
The former Enyimba marksman, however, wants himself and his team-mates to battle till the end of the season to ensure that the Port Harcourt-based club does not get relegated.
“It’s good that we are out of the relegation zone temporarily. But we have a lot of work to do before the end of the season to make sure that we are still in the Premier League because we still have some games to play. We are not carried away by the fact that we are out of the relegation zone but we will concentrate to make sure that we remain in the Premier League,” he said.
In a related development, captain of the club, Odinga Odinga, also told that he does not want his name to be written as the leader of the team that made the side drop to the lower division.
Odinga pointed out that he is ready to lead the side out of the drop zone but with the help of his team-mates and he is happy that players at the club have same ideology of battling to save the Blue Angels from being demoted at the end of this season.
“It will not be when I am captain that Sharks will be relegated to the lower division. As players of this club we have to fight to save this club from being relegated. I am not boasting about this but I am sure that Sharks will remain in the Premier League at the end of this season and we have started to play well and get the results we want now,” said Odinga.
The Sharks’ skipper believes that with 11 games to the end of the present campaign the Blue Angels would definitely remain in the Premier League.
