[SPORT NEWS]: Amoo braced for Rivers Utd test

Shooting Stars Sports Club (3SC) head coach, Fatai Amoo expects no display of complacency from Rivers United when his charges come up against the Garden City outfit side on Saturday.
The two sides go toe to toe in the first game of matchday 26 in the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) in Port Harcourt on Saturday.
Rivers United is the only Nigerian club still in the running for continental success this year but Amoo does not expect that to represent any kind of distraction for the ‘Pride of Rivers’ on Saturday at the Yakubu Gowon Stadium.
“I don’t think they (Rivers United) will be distracted as a result of their participation in the Caf Confederation Cup,” Amoo told
“You don’t just stumble on (qualification to play) on the continent.
“There were four Nigerian clubs on the continent but today, only Rivers United is left so it means they have all it takes (to play at that level).
“It is an advantage for them but it will also motivate us.
“We respect them and I expect my boys to raise their game because facing Rivers United is like facing FC Barcelona or the Brazilian national team,” he said.
Only two places and a solitary point separates Rivers United and Shooting Stars in the bottom half of the NPFL log.
