Odinga sure of Sharks beating drop

Sharks captain, Odinga Odinga (pictured), has told that the Blue Angels will keep their status for another season in the Glo Nigeria Premier League.

The Port Harcourt club are currently bottom of the table but Odinga is confident the club have the playing personnel to escape the drop at the end of this term.

Odinga, who is head of the captains' forum in the Glo Premier League, also believes starting the second round of the season with a win over Nembe City is a good sign for the Blue Angels.

"In some games this season we have been unlucky because we have created chances and we just didn't take them. But we have started well in the second round and that is good for us. I know this team have some good players and together we can help the club out of the relegation zone soon," said Odinga.

The right-back said it is not the first time Sharks have found themselves in a dogfight scenario at the foot of the table.

He recalled the 2009/10 season when the club escaped demotion on the last day.

"We have been in this position before and we escaped. That was about about three or four seasons ago. So I'm very confident we will not be relegated this season," said the defender.

In 2009/10 season, Sharks escaped relegation when they finished a position and a point above the bottom four after playing out a goalless draw at Zamfara United.

Sharks were last relegated from the Glo Premier League in 2006 when an abridged format was adopted for the top flight.
