Uweru wont miss opener.



Recuperating Crown FC goalkeeper, Michael Uweru has said he will be fit in time for the start of the 2013/14 Glo Premier League season on February 21

The former Kwara United shot-stopper suffered a shin bone injury in the side's pre-season match against Afijo United at the Lekan Salami Stadium, Ibadan on Wednesday, January 15.

Initial report said the experienced goaltender will be out of action for upward of five weeks.

However, Uweru said emphatically that he will resume full scale training next week with his colleagues.

"No, it's not a career threatening injury, it's a minor shin bone injury. I'm already engaged in light training but hopefully next week I should resume full scale training.

"There is no cause for alarm, I'll be fully fit way ahead of time prior to the commencement of the new season.

"I'm keenly looking forward to the start of the new season on February 23, I and my teammates have vowed to make Crown's comeback to the Premier League count positively this time round," said Uweru to supersport.com.

The Ogbomoso-based side are among the four teams that gained promotion to the Premier League at the end of the 2012/13 Nigeria National League (NNL) season. Others are Giwa FC, FC Taraba and Abia Warriors.
