Crown keeper accepts Xmas sacrifice



Crown FC goalkeeper, Ayo Ojo has said it is no big deal for his side to miss the Yuletide celebration.

The Ogbomoso-based side shelved the Christmas holidays to focus on weekend Matchday 2 road trip at Abia Comets in Umuahia.

Ojo said no amount of sacrifice will be considered too much to enable the side achieve their season's target of promotion to the elite league.

"There is no Christmas break for us, as we're training ahead of the weekend encounter against Abia Comets in Umuahia.

"We're dead serious about winning promotion to the Premier League at the end of the season. So we're working extremely hard to ensure we achieve our target.

"We're not taking chances. We want to stay focused and don't want the Yuletide celebration to enter into our heads and derail our programmes.

"So we're not observing the Christmas holidays, as we willingly agreed to make the necessary sacrifice and we'll do more if occasion requires it for the sake of the team.

"We don't consider missing the Christmas holidays a big deal, the purpose for missing the celebration is worthwhile," the goalkeeper said to supersport.com.

Ojo said his side are determined to consolidate on their Matchday 1 win against COD FC when they face Abia Comets this weekend.

"It's consolidation time against Abia Comets at the weekend. We're going there to get at least a point if not the maximum points," he enthused.
