Issa Gata talks up ABS' credentials

The defender reveals the Saraki Boys are in high spirits following their winning start to the second round of the NPFL

Issa Gata is convinced that ABS are capable of wining the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) title.  

Since joining the Saraki Boys from Kwara United, the player has become an integral part of Henry Makinwa's side.

He was instrumental over the weekend, as he bagged an assist in ABS' 2-2 draw against Sunshine Stars on Sunday.

“The game in Akure was wonderful. We knew how important it would be to get at least a point and we are so happy to have achieved that, but now we have to continue,” Gata told Goal.

“Are ABS on the same level as the big sides? Yes, I think so. Plateau United are doing well, so we hope to improve even more and get to the top of the table.

“Can we win the NPFL title. Yes, I really hope so!

“We have more confidence and hunger to do well. We know that we must improve a great deal.

“Coach Henry Makinwa gives everyone belief and that is important for the younger players. I think he is doing very well indeed."
