Adedeji seeks escape, Cup success

Sharks left-back, Adeyinka Adedeji (pictured), has said he is aiming to help the Port Harcourt club avoid relegation in the Glo Nigeria Premier League and do well in this year's Federation Cup.

The Blue Angels face Delta club, Julius Atete FC, in the round of 32 in the Cup and Adedeji has warned their opponents that they should not dream of securing an upset when both sides clash in Abakaliki.

"Upset? What upset? And in whose dreams?" the former under-20 defender began in rhetorics.

"Seriously I believe they are dreaming. Sharks won't just go into that game thinking it will be a stroll. We are aware of what happens in Cup games so our opponents shouldn't think we will treat them with disrespect even if they are not in the professional ranks."

Adedeji quickly took a look at the Blue Angels' chance of beating the drop in the top flight and reckons it is achievable.

But the defender made it clear that Sharks are certain of edging his former clubs, 3SC and Sunshine Stars, for the full points when they meet.

Sharks will face 3SC and Sunshine Stars in Premier League games in September.

"We won't be relegated. No soldier goes to war and tell you before the fight that he is going there to lose. At least I am sure of points against 3SC and Sunshine Stars," said Adedeji.

Sharks are currently bottom of the Premier League with 23 points.
