Dogo plans tougher ABS



ABS' technical adviser, Kabir Dogo has confirmed his wards' readiness ahead of the new premier league season.

Dogo, who helped steer ABS last season away from relegation to finish among the first 15 clubs in the final standings, told supersport.com that there is no time to rest if they have to compete for the NPL title next term.

“Last season, we escaped relegation on the last day due to the expulsion of Ocean Boys. They were our last foes at home but as a result of what happened to them, we could not play our last game of the season which we would have won to say farewell to our fans.

“I've been ordered to register only 25 players for the upcoming season and I have the belief that the boys on ground would soar when the league starts.

“We are training hard everyday for us to achieve our target and by God's grace we would fight for the title next season,” he said to supersport.com.

Dogo, last season replaced erstwhile gaffer, Erasmus Onuh who was axed by the club's management after losing 0-1 at home to Enugu Rangers in an NPL Matchday 9 fixture.
