Sunshine, Akwa to clash in Federation Cup





Sunshine Stars of Akure have said they are ready for their Round of 16 clash with fellow Premier League side, Akwa United, on July 6.



The draws released for the competition by the Nigeria Football Federation on Wednesday, pitted the two sides against each other in a match to be played in Makurdi.

Sunshine coach, Solomon Ogbeide, said in a statement that the club will ensure the continuation of their form which has seen them unbeaten in six league and two Federation Cup games.

“The draw is a good one for us because it will bring out the best in the team. Although it will not be easy, we will work harder and make sure we continue towards the goal we have as a club,” Ogbeide said.

“Akwa are a tough side but it is a good thing that both sides will play the match on a neutral gorund and our boys really are ready for the challenges of the match and those beyond it. When you remain in a competition, it can only get tougher as it proceeds.”

Sunshine, who will play IfeanyiUbah in their next league game at Nnewi, are fifth in the league.

Other all-Premier League matches in the fixture will see Rivers United battle Shooting Stars in Kaduna, while Wikki Tourists will play Plateau United. The other matches will see Crown facing Enugu Rangers, Dynamite will play Nasarawa United while Prime will battle Warri Wolves. J. Atete will battle the winner of the postponed match between Enyimba and El Kanemi Warriors, which will be played on July 6.

In the women’s quarterfinal fixtures, Sunshine Queens will battle Rivers Angels, COD United will play Bayelsa Queens, Nasarawa Amazons will face Abia Angels and Delta Queens will play Katsina Queens.
