Akwa United will gun for all three points in midweek when they host Plateau United after they recorded a deserved 1-1 draw at Kano Pillars, according to Brazilian coach Rafael Everton Plateau United will be difficult because they have a good team and a good coach.
We respect them, but we need maximum points against them for the fans to enjoy the game, I believe that after the draw at Pillars, the team will start winning again.
Interestingly, Plateau United coach Abdu Maikaba will be in Uyo to plot the downfall of the team he handled in the past two years.
Everton also told our source in footballlive.ng he was delighted with the result as well as the result at Kano Pillars.
I am happy we got a point from a difficult game at Pillars, a big team in Nigeria, he said.
I told them to play this game like a cup final and we played good football and created chances.
We lost our first match at home (to El Kanemi Warriors) and I told the players this is football and it can happen, we only have to focus and look forward to the next game.
