Coach of ABS, an Ilorin, -based club in the Nigeria Premier League, NPL, Kabir Sulaiman Dogo, says the target of the club is to pick a ticket to play on the continent at the end of the season.
Dogo said that going by the winning streak of the team in the ongoing league, he is optimistic that ABS will not disappoint their fans.
“We want to finish first term among the top five while in second term, our target is to pick a continental ticket.
“That is not to remove the title itself as part of our target this season,” he said.
ABS made good their intention to continue with their unbeaten run as they split points against hosts, Ocean Boys, in mid-week Matchday 17 at the Samson Siasia Stadium, Yenagoa on Wednesday
The team hit their opponents’ net in the 43rd minute through striker Abdulrahman Bashir while the hosts got even in the 62nd minute through a well-taken penalty by Emmanuel Enize.
A defensive blunder by Ocean Boys’ centre-back, Ebinipre Dengo caused the Brass-based side the goal. The point at Ocean Boys has taken ABS points haul to 23 from possible 51.
Dogo told SuperSport.com that they are determined to match their words of ending first term unbeaten with actions.
