Go Round’s Stanley Worlu has stated that Rivers United will have nowhere to hide when they trade tackles at this weekend’s Port Harcourt derby as they have enough information about their opponent with which to triumph in the Nigeria Professional Football League tie.
The Omoku based side returned to winning ways on Thursday after they defeated Nasarawa United 2-1 but they have a difficult away encounter with their neighbours, the Pride of Rivers whom they are facing for the time in the topflight.
But Worlu explained in an interview that Rivers United will have it rough this time around as they know their Sunday opponents more than the back of their hands.
“We are eagerly awaiting our Sunday’s fixture with Rivers United. Most of us are raised in Port Harcourt and we know them very well. The emphasis is for us to go and beat them before their fans. They won’t have it easy at all,” Worlu said.
“It was important we won the game with Nasarawa United because it has given us confidence to approach the weekend tie with confidence and poise. Rivers United won’t have any hiding place at all.
“We may be playing in our first season in the premier league but we are going into the game with Rivers United with optimism that we can stop their unbeaten home run after the weekend game.”
