Enyimba striker, Ifeanyi Ede will be available for his side Glo Premier League Matchday 24 encounter against newcomers, Nembe City at the Aba Township Stadium on Sunday.
The former Enugu Rangers striker did not feature in his side 0-2 defeat at El-Kanemi Warriors in the Glo Premier League Matchday 23 at the Maiduguri Township Stadium. He was granted permission to recover strength after Super Eagles hectic 2014 African Nations Championship (CHAN) final fixture hectic qualifying match against the Elephants of Ivory Coast in Abidjan.
Ede said he has fully rested and good to go in his side quest for the maximum three points against the Nembe-based side.
?I?m fully rested and will be available for the game against Nembe City, I?m hopeful to get the coaches nod to start in the game and I hope to give my best to ensure we grab the three points at stake.
?We can?t afford to toy with the three points after we?re beaten in Maiduguri by El-Kanemi Warriors. We must fight very hard to reclaim the points so as to position ourselves for the challenge of the league title.
?The league table is closely tight from top to the bottom that if you lose a point it takes you six, seven steps downward.
?Right now we?ve vowed to avoid dropping points both at home and on the road if we?ll remain relevant in the race for the title.
?Nembe City will be coming with the mindset to upturn the table or maintain the first fixture status quo which ended 1-1 apiece but I think we need the points more than they do.
?I?ll be excited to have my name on the scorer?s chart but the most important thing for us as a team is the three points, it?s irrelevant who actually scores the goal(s),? said the Super Eagles hitman.
The Peoples Elephant are sixth on the log on 35 points from possible 69 though with a game at hand.
