Wolves will finish very high – Aigbogun

Warri Wolves head coach, Paul Aigbogun (pictured), has made it clear that he wants to stir his side to a very high finish in this season’s campaign of the Nigeria Premier League (NPL).

Aigbogun was happy to watch his side from the bench beat fellow title contenders, Sunshine Stars, by two-nil on Sunday at the Warri City Stadium in a thrilling encounter.

“I have always said it that this team has quality. We are not ruling ourselves out of the contest because we want to finish very high on the table this season,” the Wolves’ manager told SuperSport.com.

Aigbogun is confident that his men can push closer to the summit of the log after they trimmed the gap between them and leaders, Sunshine Stars, to five points from eight.

SuperSport.com has learned that Warri Wolves handed Aigbogun a target to win the league on resuming as head coach this term.

Wolves finished sixth last season with 58 points behind Enyimba, Kano Pillars, Sunshine Stars, Kwara United and Enugu Rangers in that order.

Already Warri Wolves are nine points away from reaching same 58 points they amassed last season with 10 games to go.

The coach, who was based in England before accepting the Wolves job, believes his side can surpass their last season sixth place finish.
