Heartland to end jinx
Heartland's midfielder, Chigozie Christopher is emphatic his side will end their jinx of no road trip wins at Niger Tornadoes./p>
Both sides are scheduled to meet at the Bako Kontagora Stadium, Minna on Sunday in a rescheduled Matchday 23 game.
The first fixture at the Dan Anyiam Stadium, Owerri ended 2-1 in favour of the Naze Millionaires.
The team's trip to Minna was held up till Friday afternoon as the players insisted on payment of their outstanding 11-match bonus.
Christopher told SuperSport.com that they are well motivated for the encounter against the Minna-based side.
"We're motivated for the game at Niger Tornadoes, our 11-match bonus has been paid.
"That is the tonic we need to end our away win drought. The worst result we'll leave Minna with is a draw.
"It will be tough, Tornadoes are doing well at the moment but we'll handle them very well," he said.
The former Ocean Boys playmaker said Heartland remain strong candidates for the league shield.
"We're still a title contender, we have few outstanding matches and we hope to pick good points to even up at the top," he said.
