Nasarawa United centre-back Tebo Franklin recognizes that Wednesday’s Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) match against Enyimba will be tricky, but believes that his side will come out on top.
The defender has proven to be a crucial component of Bala Nikyu’s Nasarawa United team this season.
Speaking to Newsmen, Tebo Franklin expressed his elation with Nasarawa United’s form this season but stressed that Enyimba will be difficult competition.
“Top three is very good, but now we must just concentrate on a game against Enyimba that will be one of the most difficult we’ve had so far in NPFL,” he began.
“We play well at home, but we will try to win as always.”
Tebo Franklin’s efforts in the centre of defence have paid off: in the seven NPFL matches he’s started, the Solid Miners have conceded a mere five goals.
The defender is modest enough to not accept all the credit, however.
“The defence’s success is due to the sacrifice of all,” he said.
Asked about his prediction for Wednesday’s match in Lafia, Tebo Franklin was optimistic.
“It might be a narrow win, but we hope to pick the three points.”
