Speaking with www.nigeriasportsnews.org, Omorogbe Jr.,Â said it is too early to write off the club as there are still over ten regular season games to be played.
He said the players and coaching crew of the team have resolved to put in extra effort to make sure the club survive the tough terrain of the Nigeria DSTV Premier, which he described as one of the toughest in Africa.
