We want to win the title - Eguma



Dolphin manager Stanley Eguma says the target of the club remains the top prize in the Nigeria Premier League (NPL).

The Port Harcourt based side registered their second away victory of the 2010/2011 campaign thanks to a 1-0 victory over newly-promoted Crown in Illaro on Sunday.

Chidi Osuchukwu, who had missed the club’s last two games with an ankle injury got the winner in the second half of a feisty contest.

Eguma believes his side has the character of champions and has now set his sights on lofty targets.

“This was a very difficult game but I thank God for enabling us get the three points. Crown is a good side. They caused us many problems but in the end, my boys showed their potential and held on for this important victory,” he told SuperSport.com post match.

Eguma said their next task is to consolidate with another decisive performance in their next game noting that the win against Crown would be tantamount to nothing if they fail to build on their success on the road.

“We will try to do the same thing in our next match. It is a pity we have to play without our home fans for the second consecutive home match, But I trust my boys. We are professionals and will get on with the job.

We can win the league. All we need is hard work and consistency. We also need to respect all our opponents because every opposition in the league is strong. With God on our side, we will achieve our objectives,” he said.

Dolphin are now top of the standings with 18 points from nine matches.
