Tianjin TEDA manager Jamie Pacheco says he is banking on Nigerian striker Brown Ideye to help the club to their third win in the Chinese Super League when they face Hebei China Fortune away on Saturday, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.
Tianjin TEDA have won two games, lost two and drawn two since the start of the CSL season.
Ideye scored in last week's 3-1 win over Yanbian Funde.
"Hebei this year have in their ranks some quality foreign players, but ahead of the game, we will try to play to our own advantages, and then curtail their own strenghts," Pacheo told sports.enorth.com.cn.
"I believe that away from home we can get three points because Ideye's speed, strength and physical abilities will help us, so we are also trying to take these existing advantages.
"Ideye's performance against Yanbian was very good, better than the previous game. He is gradually adapting well with teammates and there's a tacit understanding between them in terms of communication."
Tianjin TEDA are 10th in the CSL log with eight points from six games.
