Niger Tornadoes goalkeeper, Aliko Salihu is confident that MFM FC will be defeated in their game today when both sides file out to trade tackles in Lokoja, the Kogi State capital in Week 37 game of the 2015/16 Nigeria Professional Football League.

The Week 37 Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) battle will take place at the artificial turf of the Confluence Stadium.

And for captain and goalkeeper of the Ikon Allah Boys, Aliko Salihu, the visitors should just be contented with admiring the ancient city before returning home empty handed.

"Our fate is in our hands and we must grab the chance on Sunday," Aliko told Goal.

"We aren't safe yet, so MFM should forget about getting anything from us.

"MFM FC should try and go to Mount Party and admire the rich culture of Kogi State.

"Football is decided at the end of 90 minutes. The story will be positive for us. It will be three points or nothing.

"My appeal to the fans is for them to come out in their thousands and give us the massive support." (goal.com)
