Healers Vows To Descend On Adamawa Utd

Premier League-bound side, Jos University Teaching Hospital (JUTH) Football Club, is confident of winning the maximum points ahead of its home tie against Adamawa United.
Self-belief is brimming in the squad in spite of last weekend’s lone goal loss to Spotlight Football Club in Gusau, Zamfara State, which paved way for city rival, Mighty Jets, to take over top spot in the National Division IA League.
JUTH FC top scorer in the lower division, Victor Yakubu, believes that the Week 20 tie with Adamawa United has availed his side the opportunity to wrest back the leading position on the league log from Mighty Jets.
The Healers is currently in third position behind Mighty Jets and Babanawa.
But Yakubu goes into this game with so much self-belief that Adamawa United is in for a backlash at the Rwang Pam Stadium in Jos.
“We are in third place now, this is the chance for us to go back to the top and we won’t toy with it. We will beat Adamawa very well to tell people that we are still the best,” Yakubu said.
His team-mate, Mohamed Adamu, also backed his side to win this encounter though he had some words of caution by describing Adamawa United as a side capable of battling for the points on Saturday.
“Adamawa United are no small team. They are a good side and we are not going to take them for granted. This is why we have been preparing for them and we will win the game convincingly to regain our position in the top,” Adamu promised.
Meanwhile the management of the team has read a riot act to the players to get serious with their job and the task ahead or get booted out.
Team manager, Mohamed Abdulahi, tasked the players on the uphill task of getting promotion to the top-flight, adding that they should improve and get better with each game.
He pointed out that the management would not hesitate to punish any player found wanting.
“We are doing our part (of the bargain) well as managers and that is why we don’t take your welfare with levity. You should be serious with all the games because there is no time or room for making mistakes. We are in here for a mission and that is to get the promotion ticket, and we expect you to improve game after game and show seriousness in all matches. We won’t hesitate to punish any one of you who is not taking his job serious,” Abdulahi told the players.
