Lobi stars captain Anthony Agbaji said securing three points away to newcomers is possible, as the pride of Benue visit the Sky Blues in Sunday’s top-flight Week 9 clash at the Gateway international stadium in Sagamu.
The central defender insists Lobi will not underestimate the bottom-placed newcomers as they will treat them as equal and accord them due respect.
“Our mission is to see that we get at least a point in the clash at Remo Stars though we are not ruling out the entire points.
“Although Remo Stars are the bottom-placed side at the moment we will avoid treating the side as cheap and weak as that could spell doom for us.
“We will treat them as equal and accord them the right respect more so as they have a new coach who will want to make an instant impact on the side.
“We drew our last home match against newcomers, Katsina United which is not healthy for our image.
“And here we are faced with other newcomers, Remo Stars so we are focused and motivated to give our very best against the opponents aimed at reclaiming the points lost to the Katsina outfit.
“We have put behind us the fact that our head coach is suspended to concentrate on winning as that is certain to make him happy by the time he returns in three-week time.
“Everybody is on the same course to get something positive out of this match and take it up from there to other matches on the calendar,” said the Lobi Stars strongman to supersport.com.
The Makurdi-based side is eighth on the top-flight on 11 points six behind league leaders, Plateau United with a game at hand against champions, Enugu Rangers.
While Remo Stars will want a third win in the NPFL to ease the tension in the ranks of the inexperienced debutants.
