Akwa United must be wary of MFM FC, says Ubong Friday

The Promise Keepers’ striker has praised the brilliance of the team in the first round and has stated that the club will do more in the second round.

Akwa United striker, Ubong Friday has urged his teammates to thread with caution against current league leaders, MFM if they are to beat them on Wednesday.

The Promise Keepers dazed Kano Pillars in their last league encounter after a shock 1-0 win and ahead of the grudge match on Wednesday against a youthful Olukoya Boys.

Accoording to him, his colleagues must avoid playing to the gallery if they are to secure maximum points against one of the in-form teams in the elite division.

“The win in Kano has become eye opener for other clubs to take us seriously and I have told my teammates that we must be ready to fight for the home points,” Friday told Goal.

''It was sweet that we beat Pillars away from home but it will be sweeter if we add MFM to the number of those we have beaten this season. They are a very youthful side and we must be very focused against them.

“We have trained very hard for this match with MFM and it will be a disservice if we are unable to beat them on Wednesday.''
