Tornadoes still in NNL title race



Niger Tornadoes' goalkeeper, Mustapha Aliko has side his side are very much in the race for the NNL title.

Tornadoes have raked in six points from four matches and are three points adrift leaders, Mighty Jets.

The Minna-based side will host Spotlite on Matchday 5 this Saturday at the Bako Kontagora Stadium, Minna.

Aliko said victory against Spotlite this weekend will help his side to keep the pressure on NNL leaders, Mighty Jets and possible take over at the top of the log.

"The race for the NNL crown is wide open, no team can lay claim to the title right now including those at the top.

"The league is quite new, teams are still testing the waters and when the chips are down, the true leaders will emerge.

"We're in the race, we're on the right path, aside the initial hiccups I know in the next three or four matches we'll stabilise as well as claim our rightful position.

"We're battle ready to claim three points against Spotlite. It's an opportunity for us to consolidate on our last week win against FC Abuja.

"We're playing two home matches in a row so we must make the best use of the opportunity to improve on our rating on the log.

"I'm positive Tornadoes will return to the Premier League at the end of the current season," he said to supersport.com.

Tornadoes are among the four teams that went down to the lower division at the end of the 2011/12 NPL season.
