Enyimba’s goalkeeper, Paul Godwin, has promised to keep a clean sheet against Lobi Stars when they welcome the Benue state-owned club to Aba in tomorrow’s week 8 encounter.
Godwin, who was instrumental to helping Enyimba record a slim 1-0 win against Akwa United in week 6, stated that he was willing to do his bit to help the club if selected for the mid-week encounter against the Suswam’s Boys.
He stated that lack of goals from the strikers was a contributory factor to the club’s dismal performance this season. He, however, admitted that they had not also kept it tight at the back as they had conceded in all but one of their home games, unlike last season when they did not concede any goal at home.
“We have a very good team; a very balanced team.
“But somehow, just as we are struggling to score goals, we are also struggling to keep clean sheets. This is not good and it is why I want to do my best to make sure we go on a run of clean sheets,” he told Enyimba’s website.
Godwin noted that the Abia state-owned club are looking to turn their fortunes around by ensuring they keep a third consecutive clean sheet against Lobi, having held off the rampaging attackers of Warri Wolves and Aka United in their last two games.
