“We are out of the AITEO Cup and only have the league title to focus on now,” Ogunbote tells Completesportsnigeria.com.

On Enyimba’s struggle in the early part of the season, Ogunbote remarks: “The players were new and when the quality started coming up, everything started materialising. And the players too had no choice but to put in their best.”
Enyimba will host Wikki Tourist in Calabar in week 36 of the NPFL on Sunday.
