Rivers United tie a must win for us, says Nasarawa United's Williams

The Pride of Rivers captain has appealed to the state governor to help clear the outstanding fees before the upcoming season starts

Jide Williams insists that Nasarawa United must win their tie against Rivers United in order to continue their push for the Nigerian topflight's title.

The Solid Miners face the Caf Confederations Cup campaigners in a rescheduled league encounter at the Lafia City Stadium on Sunday.

"Rivers United isn't a team to joke with so we can't afford to drop points against them," Williams told Goal.

"We believe that victory will put us with a chance of competing with the title contenders. No one should rule us out of reckoning.

"The league has not been won yet. The battle for the top prize will be very interesting.

"There is no doubt that we can improve. We can not afford to drop our heads," he concluded.
