NPFL: Dike predicts tough tie at Ikorodu

Heartland head coach, Alphonsus Dike has predicted a difficult match at newcomers and strugglers, Ikorodu United.
The Naze Millionaires will be the guests of the Oga Boys in Saturday’s Nigerian top flight matchday 14 clash at the Agege Township Stadium in Lagos.
Dike said the score draw at oriental neighbours and champions, Enyimba in Wednesday’s rescheduled NPFL matchday 6 clash is the morale boost his side needed to challenge for the three points at Ikorodu United.
“The 1-1 draw at Enyimba is a good result as the players played well to deserve the whole points if not little mistakes here and there in the match.
“Of course, the score draw is a huge boost for us going into the weekend match at Ikorodu United.
“I have already told the players to prepare their minds for the toughest game in the ongoing top flight at Ikorodu United.
“I’m going to emphasis on the need for them to prepare for the worst as Ikorodu United are wounded lions right now.
“I foresee the encounter at Enyimba becoming a child’s play compare with the expected difficulties at the Lagos outfit.
“Of course, we understand that no good result will come on a platter of gold at Ikorodu United without us practically sweating to our panties.
“However, we are hopeful for a good result either the whole three points or point but outright defeat is out of the calculation.
“The players are showing good understanding and we must maximise the opportunity to claim more points to improve on our rating on the log,” said the former Enugu Rangers coach.
Heartland are 11th on the log on 18 points from possible 39 in the 13-week old Nigerian top flight.
