Finidi George’s side recorded their first win in the NPL Super Six playoffs against Lobi Stars at the Mobolaji Johnson Arena, Onikan, Lagos on Monday.

Chukwuemeka Obioma scored the decisive goal in the 16th position.

The Aba giants now occupy top position on the log with four points from two ahead of title holders Rivers United who also have similar points.

The shot stopper insisted Rivers United and the other teams in the competition are good enough to win the title but claimed they will strive to emerge the number one team.

“All six teams here have what it takes to win the competition. We all deserved to be here,”Olorunleke told Completesports.com.

“Our main objective is to win the competition but it will take a lot of hard work to achieve the feat.

“The defending champions are here and the other teams have quality players as well.

“We will take it one game at a time, hopefully we will take the trophy home to Aba at the end of the day.”

Enyimba will take on Bendel Insurance in their next game on Wednesday.
