Okorie aims high at Super Four



Lobi Stars' striker, Daniel Okorie is optimistic that his side would emerge champions at the ongoing NPL Super Four which started on Wednesday in Kano.

Okorie provided the winning goal for the Stars in their Matchday 1 win over last season's NPL runners-up, Enugu Rangers.

Interestingly, Lobi Stars' victory over Rangers was Okorie's debut for the Stars as he teamed up with the Makurdi-based club last year December from relegated club, Jigawa Golden Stars.

“I nearly went crazy scoring my first goal in my first appearance for Lobi Stars and thanks to all my teammates who were behind the goal I scored as we are ready to win this competition,” Okorie said to supersport.com in Kano.

The erstwhile Jigawa Golden Stars' forward has now set a target of five goals for himself in the Super Four.

“I want to score five goals in our next two games and I believe I would score with the support from my teammates,” he added.

Lobi Stars will meet champions, Kano Pillars in their second duel on Thursday from 3pm at the Sani Abacha Stadium, Kofarmata, Kano.

Surprisingly, Kano Pillars lost their first game 0-1 to Federation Cup holders, Heartland.
