Warri Wolves will on Matchday 23 of the Nigeria Professional Football League, NPFL, play hosts to Lobi Stars of Makurdi on Wednesday at home.
In the revised fixture, Lobi Stars had beaten Warri Wolves 3 – 0, and since then, it has been mixed run of results for the Seasiders.
Ahead of Wednesday’s tie, the Wolves showed a foregleam of a keen contest against their Matchday 23 visitors, when they recorded a 3 – 3 draw against Adamawa United in Gombe on Sunday.
In the light of that result, the chairman of the Delta State Football Association, DFA, Ken Nwaomucha has charged the Warri Wolves to go for the jugular against visiting Lobi Stars.
While reacting to the team’s result against Adamawa United, Nwaomucha urged the Seasiders to improve on the positives recorded in that tie, with the hope of securing a favorable score against Lobi Stars.
“I salute them for a job well done in faraway Gombe against Adamawa,” Nwaomucha noted.
“On Wednesday, let them go for the jugular against Lobi Stars. Work on the positives from the last game and secure a favorable outcome.”
“The target to stay alive in the league could be achieved collectively at the end of the day by the team.”
The clash between Warri Wolves and Lobi Stars at the Delta State Polytechnic Stadium in Ozoro will be the first ever meeting between the two sides at that ground.
The last time Lobi Stars locked horns with the Seasiders on Delta soil it ended in a barren draw at the Warri City Stadium.
