Peters assures on new look Bees



Ranchers Bees' technical adviser, James Peters has said his side are now more equipped than ever to challenge for the Nigeria National League title.

The Bees on Saturday forced NPL side, Kaduna United to 1-1 draw in a friendly match at the Kaduna Township Stadium heading into Tuesday's Matchday 8 clash against hosts, Sokoto United.

Peters said the rookies he started the league campaign with were not forthcoming with the desired results hence the urgent need for complete overhaul of the team.

"We started the season with hurriedly assembled local players but after seven weeks they've struggled to produce tangible results. I told the management that if we must compete favourably in the league there is need to urgently overhaul the team and strengthen it with experienced legs.

"We've effected the necessary changes now we expect positive results and the positive result will start against Sokoto United on Tuesday.

"We're going for the maximum three points at stake, Sokoto United have a good home record and fairly good one on the road. The challenge will be stiff but we've no choice than to win. Victory in the encounter will boost the confidence of the players going into the next league matches," said the former national team assistant coach to supersport.com.

After seven weeks of match action in the NNL, Ranchers Bees are stuck on 10 points from a maximum of 21 points.
