Rivers United forward, Bernard Ovoke has dismissed that any pressure is on the team despite poor start to the season.
Rivers United are placed 18th on the NPFL log, after Matchday 18, having 3 outstanding games to play, they have gathered 20points in 15games played this season.
Speaking to Sportlens360.com, Ovoke Bernard said the team is targeting a turn around despite their poor season.
“We are not under any pressure right now, but things will be fine. We have lots of outstanding games and I believe we are going to do well.”
The team finished second in the NPFL race last season, but couldn’t get past Al-Merrikh of Sudan in the CAF Champions League qualifying stage, only to crash out to CAF Confederations cup where they will play Rayon Sports for a place in the Group Stages.
“I’m positive about our chances in the CAF Confederations Cup, and I believe we are going to qualify for the next stage. Our coaches are doing well to make things go well and smooth.”
