Coach of two time-African champions, Enyimba Football Club of Aba, Okey Emordi, says fans andÂ supporters of the club are yet to see the best of the team.
Enyimba put up a stellar performance in a 3-0 romp against Kwara United in a rescheduled NigeriaÂ Premier League, NPL, match played in Aba on Wednesday.
â€œIf we continue like this, we will have a great chance of achieving a lot before the end of theÂ season. We played excellently and I can assure the fans that the best of Enyimba is yet toÂ come,â€Emordi told SuperSport.com.
The champions made a happy return to Aba after consecutive heart-warming domestic and continental roadÂ victories against Crown FC and St. Michel d’Ouenze of Congo respectively.
Enyimba’s speed and quick-passing game astounded the visitors as the Peoples Elephants went on toÂ record their biggest win of the season and ensure Kadiri Ikhana’s return to his former club ended inÂ agony.
Goal heroes, Barnabas and Sakibu, were constant threats and there was little the visitors could do toÂ stop their darting runs around the box.
Victor Barnabas opened the scoring on 8 minutes with a stunning strike, while man of the moment,Â Sakibu, made it two with a straight forward effort shortly after the restart.
Barnabas completed his brace in stoppage time as Enyimba moved up to 7th on the NPL log with 22 pointsÂ from 14 matches.
