Heartland ready for Super Four



Cup holders, Heartland on Monday left their base, Owerri to Kano for the Super Four tournament.

The Super Four tournament is billed to hold in the ancient city of Kano from January 9 to 13 among the four continental torch-bearers namely Kano Pillars, Enugu Rangers, Heartland and Lobi Stars.

Heartland assistant coach, Ransom Madu said his side are confident of emerging winners of the five-day tournament.

"We're heading to Kano with great hope of winning the Super Four trophy.

"Of course, tough challenge is expected from the contestants as virtually all the teams have one score to settle with us or another.

"Lobi will want to prove they are the better side after we edged them for the 2012 Federation Cup title while Pillars are not convinced we're the better side after the Charity Cup defeat.

"The oriental rivalry between Heartland and Rangers will still come up strongly.

"However, we're not scared or bothered of the challenges, we want to be champions and are determined to play the best.

"Expectations are high on us and we won't disappoint," said the former Iwuanyanwu Nationale player to supersport.com.

Madu is positive the Super Four challenge will provide the teams the platform to test their players ahead of the African club competitions.

"In the absence of competitive league the Super Four will help the teams in Africa to test their players ahead of the continental assignment. At least, it will give them some semblance of competitive matches," he said.
