“Shooting Stars Sports Club (3SC) have always been a traditional side in the domestic scene the influence and weight are what we will take to Katsina United.
“Although, Katsina United are newcomers in the Premier league we have come to believe that none of the 20 teams is a pushover.
“Every team in the top-flight including Katsina United rightly deserves its due place and ought to be respected.
“We will accord the hosts, Katsina United its rightful respect but our target is the whole three points at stake or worst case scenario a point.
“We have vowed to avoid defeat in the encounter as it will further compound our uncomfortable position on the log.
“The matchup is certain to be difficult we are ready and have actually steeled ourselves for the banters the hosts will throw at us,” said the former Kwara United shot stopper to supersport.com.
Uweru said the goalkeepers are damn ready to guard the rear to ensure a 100% clean sheet is maintained in the clash.
“There is no rivalry among the goalkeepers our interest is same as the entire team to ensure we claim decent result.
“I’m confident whoever that gets the nod to man the post will cover as well as protect the post perfectly,” said the former Crown FC goalie.
The Ibadan landlords are 17th on the 20-team top-flight on seven points 10 behind league leaders, Plateau United.
