'Akwa United head coach Abdu Maikaba says his side play the most aesthetic brand of football in the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL).

The experienced trainer has hit great heights with the Promise Keepers this term following his departure from Wikki Tourists at the end of last season.

United currently occupy fourth spot on the NPFL standings and have suffered only two defeats in their last 11 domestic matches.

“Yes, I agree that we are playing some of the best football in the NPFL currently,” Maikaba told supersport.com.

“But I cannot mark my own exams script myself but since people are saying it too (that Akwa United plays some of the best football in the division), it is not far from the truth.“

I am happy that people are rating us high,” he said.

Akwa United sit just three points away from the Caf Champions League qualification spots in the NPFL standings and they have played a game less than the three sides currently above them on the log.

With just 10 more rounds of matches to go this season, the Uyo club are within striking distance of a place on the continent next term.

Maikaba however insists that only total focus from all stakeholders of the club will see them achieve set objectives at the end of the season.

“If we want to achieve our objectives this season (of getting a Caf Champions League ticket), we have to remain focussed.“

We also have to continue working hard as we have from the beginning of the season,” Maikaba said. (Supersports)
