Niger Tornadoes Head Coach, Abdullah Biffo, has dismissed claims that his side will struggle in the elite division, despite failing to record a win in its first three fixtures of the season.
Tornadoes is one of the four teams promoted from the Nigeria National League (NNL) to the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) at the start of the season and have managed one draw at home and two defeats on the road thus far.
Biffo in a chat with npfl.ng, shortly after his side’s loss to Rangers International at the Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium, on Sunday, expressed optimism that the Minna side would overcome the seeming early poor run of form and compete well.
“The fact remains that we have dropped another three points and that is not what we bargained for. It was our third game of the season and we are yet to record a win and it gives all of us major concern. I believe we will get it right in the next few games.
“We will pick up from here and win games. We have had only three out of 38 matches; there are 35 more games to play before one can make any concrete statement as regards the season. We have not even gone halfway yet. No team can at the moment know where they will finish in the league. It is too early to make predictions. As the league progresses we hope to improve”, the Coach told npfl.ng
Niger Tornadoes will play Nasarawa United in a Match-day 4 fixture at the Confluence Stadium, Lokoja this afternoon.
