Wikki will dry up Ocean - Umanah

Defender Festus Umanah (pictured) has told that Wikki Tourists are capable of grinding out a result at Ocean Boys this Sunday.

Ocean Boys play hosts to Wikki Tourists at the Samson Siasia Stadium in Yenagoa in a Matchday 15 Nigeria Premier League (NPL) game.

Umanah comes face-to-face with his former team, Ocean Boys and is confident that the Tourists will surprise their hosts.

"We have done well so far this season. At the moment we are fourth on the table and that's an encouraging position for us to keep fighting for in order to stay close to the top teams. It's never ever going to be easy playing against Ocean Boys because they are very strong at home.

"Personally I believe we can go there (Yenagoa) and get a very good result. Wikki Tourists have quality players that can do the job in Yenagoa," he said.

Umanah is also relishing a return to Ocean Boys, where he played club football last season before joining Wikki Tourists at the start of this season.

"It will be a good experience to go back (to Yenagoa) to face my former team. I'm happy to face them and I pray we leave there with a very good result because I know we can do so," he said.

Umanah, who can also play as a centre-half, believes Wikki can win their first point on the road after losing all six away games so far this term.
