Gombe United skipper Itodo Akor is convinced they can finish in the top three and seal a playoffs spot.
With the Savannah Scorpions returning to winning ways on Wednesday in a 1-0 victory against Kwara United, Itodo expects them to keep pushing.
Itodo who kept his fourth clean sheet of the season told Lodgexpress: “We need to keep believing and thinking like that, it is the only way to be. We want to finish in the top three, and not just third. We want to catch Akwa United and Remo Stars.
“We have got to keep aiming high, not waiting for teams to catch us up. We can’t look behind us. We have got to be positive, look forward to the next games. Every game in the Nigeria Premier League in the next month or two is going to be really difficult and decisive.
“It is that time of year, the pitches are getting softer, a bit bobblier and the weather is cold.
“It is about digging out results rather than playing fantastic football. This was a great win but we live to continue fighting till the end of the season.”
