Technical manager of Rivers United, Stanley Eguma has set his sight on a win against Niger Tornadoes in Lokoja this afternoon.
United have been peerless at home but notoriously poor travellers this season. They have shipped in four goals in just two matches and failed to amass even a single point on their travels this season.
However, Eguma who surprisingly excluded Benjamin Ovoke from the match day squad and without the services of midfield gem Victor Alegbe insists that the losing streak in away games will be stopped today.
“We have yet to pick up a single point on the road this season. We have prepared for this game against Niger Tornadoes.
“Our preparations are aimed at seeing us pick maximum points (here in Lokoja) but we know we are going to face a very good side.
“From their days in the second division, they have kept the core of their tem even after gaining promotion (to the elite division) so they have continuity as an important factor going for them,” he said.
The fixture kicks off at 4pm at the Confluence Stadium, Lokoja.
