Elkanemi Warriors forward Sanni Abanni insisted that Sunday’s win over Akwa United was ‘’very important’ as they make a charge for the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) play offs.
Kabir Balogun, Abbani, Sunday Anthony and Bello Kofarmata gave the Desert Warriors all three points in the NPFL week 13 clash in Maiduguri, and the forward admitted that it was a vital victory for his team.
“We put our heart and soul into that win,” he told Footballlive.ng. “To be the first team to win against Akwa United in a long time is fantastic.
“Our goal is to get to qualify for the play offs. Once we get to that target, then we’ll see where we can go.”
“We play better when we have fun. Today (Sunday) we entertained a lot of people. We defended very well as a team – as an entire 11 we did well in that department.
“We’re on form coming into the remaining games of the season. Most of the players are playing really well.”
