Wikki captain Guda happy with impressive start to campaign

By Joshua Tekidek

Wikki Tourists captain Idris Mohammed Guda is happy with how they have started this season’s Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) and could not hide his excitement of helping his side to a 1-0 win over Heartland last Saturday at the Pantami Stadium Gombe.

Guda netted the goal that turned out to be the winner against Heartland from the spot, and now hopes that they can keep their fine form going as the season progresses.

“The most important thing was the three points. It doesn’t matter where it came from and how many goals was scored in the match.

“We hope we keep on doing well and we want our supporters to continue to believe in us,” said Guda.

The win over Heartland now places Wikki in second position, just a point behind leaders Plateau United.

Guda was not just instrumental in netting the winner, he was also industrious at the other end of the pitch for Wikki with a goal-line clearance that denied Chijioke Opara from heading Heartland level in the match.

Wikki will head to the southeast town of Nnewi this weekend to face FC Ifeanyiubah in their next match of the campaign.
