With a CAF Champions League ticket already in the bag, MFM FC coach Fidelis Ilechukwu says his team would push their luck further in a bid to wrest this season's Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) title from table-toppers Plateau United this weekend.

However MFM FC will have to do that in one of the league's most difficult venues in Maiduguri against El-Kanemi Warriors.

MFM have amassed 62 points, one behind Plateau United, following a convincing 2-0 victory over Nasarawa United on Matchday 37 at the Agege Stadium in Lagos on Sunday and Ilechukwu acknowledged that his team must win on Sunday to stand a chance of claiming a first title though that will happen if only Plateau United fail to defeat outgoing champions Rangers International at the Rwang Pam Stadium in Jos.

According to the dark-skinned tactician, El-Kanemi Warriors have not really changed much since their last encounter on Matchday 18. And, having played and defeated El-Kanemi Warriors hands down (3-0) during the first round, Ilechukwu is confident his players have the know-how to win the game

“We are the team to win the NPFL this season and we are almost there,” Ilechukwu said. "We have to beat El-Kanemi to cap a successful season, because if we want to lift the league trophy, we need the final day’s three points and this is achievable,” he told npfl.ng.
