There are only five games remaining in the current season of the Nigeria Professional Football League.

This means hope is fast running out for Remo Stars and Rivers United as they look to preserve their status in the top flight.

Both teams clash on Sunday in a match-day 34 fixture.

Remo Stars, viewed by the bookmakers are sure bets for the drop, lost their last home fixture against MFM FC on July 30 and United will be looking to toe the path of the high-flying ‘Olukoya Boys’.

Technical manager of Rivers United, Stanley Eguma will be looking to mastermind his first away success of the season and one of the individuals he will be relying on to supply the goals on Sunday, Godbless Asamoah.

“All hopes are not lost but we will get it right in the next five matches,” Asamoah told Rivers United official website.

“The players have met and we have resolved that we will fight with our lives to see this club escape from relegation.

“By the grace of God, we will come out of the relegation zone after the next five matches,” he said.

Words they say, are cheap and the boys from Port Harcourt must be ready to battle for all 90 minutes with great intensity to achieve set goals.
