Iroha Backs Heartland To Finish In Glo League Top Three

By Sab Osuji:

Ben Iroha says he remains confident Heartland can finish amongst the top three in the Glo Premier League table.

Iroha who is making a return to the club as coach started his second reign as technical helmsman of the Naze Millionaires on Wednesday when the club saw off resilient Sharks 1-0 in a match day 34 clash at Dan Anyiam Stadium.

"What is important at this stage is the maximum points," the former Super Eagles left-back told Completesportsnigeria.com.

"If we can win all the remaining games by 1-0, why not? We can get it (top three).

"Its not yet over, we're still in the groove and we will give it a push."

Heartland are seventh in the NPFL table with 50 points, three points behind Nasarawa United and Sunshine Stars (who have played 33 games) who are in sixth and fifth places respectively.

Enyimba lead the pack with 62 points, followed by Warri Wolves with 59 points, Wikki Tourists and Giwa FC with 57 points respectively.

The 2009 CAF Champions League losing finalists will travel to Ifeanyiubah FC on Sunday for a match day 35 fixture.

"That is what we hope to achieve. We want to see if we can win all our remaining games starting with the game against Ifeanyiubah.

"It's not impossible. We hope to win every single game now till the end of the season.

"If we can do that, it's continental here we come," the FIFA U-17 World Cup-winning assistant coach in Korea 2007 told Completesportsnigeria.com.
