Sunday Akleche believes Lobi Stars should be strong enough to pick up a result away to Plateau United but is expecting a tough tie.
The Pride of Benue will be guests to the Jos-based side in match day seven of the Nigeria Professional Football League on Sunday.
Lobi currently occupy fifth spot in the NPFL standings, three points adrift of the leaders. While, Plateau United find themselves in 12th position.
“We are good enough to compete at the Rwang Pam Stadium. It will be very difficult, though, because we respect Plateau United a lot,” Akleche said.
“It is our seventh League game and we will be playing away from home, but we must play our game and try to punish them.
“We know they have their philosophy and we also have ours too.
