Dele Ajiboye has expressed confidence in Plateau United’s credentials to compete for ‘honours’ this season.
Although, the Peace Boys have led all through the 12-week-old Nigeria Professional Football League, recently, they have struggled.
And despite their worries, the former Fifa U-17 World Cup winner has talked up his team’s capabilities to hunt for glory this season.
“We’ve got to take it each game as it comes. We’re confident and have a good squad capable of competing for honours,” Ajiboye said.
“Plateau United will remain on top of the table until the end of the season. We are goal oriented and want to also have a crack at the title.”
The topflight leaders played out a 1-1 draw with Shooting Stars last weekend and Ajiboye, who played a big part in shutting out his former team, is contented with leaving the Lekan Salami Stadium with a point.
“Our form before the match in Ibadan was worrisome but we picked up the pieces and gave a good account of ourselves against my former club. We always have a positive mindset to everything we do.
“At the end of the match we picked one point. Half bread is better than none. We would pick it up from there in our upcoming fixtures,” he added.
Next up for the Peace Boys is a tough fixture against in-form Kano Pillars at the Rwang Pam Stadium on Sunday.
