Dolphins will win league title - Eguma

Dolphins head coach, Stanley Eguma, is targeting the Glo Premier League this season with the Port Harcourt club.

Eguma was in charge of The Pride of Port Harcourt when they last won the league title in the 2010/11 by two points over second-placed Sunshine Stars and he believes they "can do it" again.

He explained that Dolphins are working towards achieving their target of winning a fourth league title.

“We are working towards that and we know we are equal to the task.

“Remember we won the title in 2011 and we have set it as our target and we believe we can do it. We only just ask for support of the fans.

“We are assuring them that this season our target is the league title,” said Eguma.

Ahead of this season, Eguma has decided to turn to young players with pace to help in their chase of a fourth league title.

The Dolphins manager also acknowledged that he is working on the "mentality" of the youngsters in his fold to prepare them for life in the top flight.

“We are still working on the young players that we have and we believe that by the time the league starts they will begin to have the mentality of Premiership players.

“It is tough but we feel that with hard work on these young players we will eventually get it right.”

The Port Harcourt club will start off the 2013/14 Glo Premier League season at Heartland on February 23.

Dolphins have been champions of the Glo Premier League in 1997, 2004 and 2011 and have won the Federation Cup (formerly the FA Cup) four times in 2001, 2004, 2006 and 2007.
