Finidi George is optimistic his Enyimba side will be more consistent in the second stanza of the 2021/22 Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL), starting with a home game against Wikki Tourists in Aba on Sunday.
The record 8-time league champions endured a turbulent and inconsistent first stanza of the campaign, managing just 26 points from 19 matches to place 10th on the standings at halfway stage of the season.
Having held Wikki Tourists to a goalless draw two weeks ago in the reverse fixture, the Enyimba gaffer says the Bauchi-based side are no strangers to the People’s Elephant, adding that his boys are ‘motivated’ to bounce back to winning ways.
“We know their (Wikki Tourists) strength and weaknesses,” the former Super Eagles star told www.enyimbafc.net. “We saw them play and we’ve been watching the video of the last match, taking notes.
“So, I think come Sunday, we’ll let the boys know what and what to do so that we can win the match.
“We all know every game is difficult but we want to start on a good note and see how we can start winning games and have that consistency which was lacking in the first stanza of the league. I think we want to turn that around and that will start on Sunday.
On the readiness of his team for the clash, he added: “The boys are motivated. We want to win.
“We are all chasing Rivers United and Plateau United, but we want to start well this second phase of the league.
“We didn’t have a break, we’ve been working so hard to see how we can get the boys top fit. We hope we can see that in Sunday’s match.”
