Gateway International Stadium, Sagamu is the venue for one of Match 34 fixtures in the Nigeria Professional Football League between host Remo Stars Football Club (RSFC) and Rivers United FC (RUFC).
The game which is scheduled to hold on Sunday would be beamed live across the world and it’s an avenue for the players to showcase their talents on the field of play.
The Sky Blue Stars lost 2-0 to ABS FC in Match Day 33 held at the Kwara State Complex, Ilorin and visitors, Rivers United fashioned out a 1-1 draw against Katsina United at the front of their fans in Portharcourt, Rivers State.
Transferred down Remo Stars are bottom on the log with 29 points from 33 games while relegation threatened Rivers United are 18th on the log with 42 points.
In the reverse fixture, the Pride of Rivers defeated the Sky Blue Stars at the Liberation Stadium after Bernard Ovoke got to only goal of the match.
Obi Jerry who made his debut for the Sky Blue Stars in Ilorin from the bench is very hopeful and confident that host will get the maximum points against the visitors.
“It’s going to be a difficult game because we are playing against a side who where NPFL runners up last season and also a compact side that have played together outside Nigeria but we would surely rise above them on Sunday.”
“The game would be my first start for the senior side, I could be starting along with the seniors and it would be a thing of joy for me if I am chosen to start the game.”
“I will adapt easily because our philosophy in Remo Stars is to play a free flow football and I am sure I will perform well if listed to start the game.” Jerry told Remo Stars Media.
