Heartland captain, Chinedu Efugh, has said his team is eyeing all three points when they take on Enyimba on Wednesday.
The Naze Millionaires travel to Aba in a rescheduled Nigeria Professional Football League (NPF) Match Day 6 fixture.
Efugh expects a tough derby, but insists they are prepared.
“Of course, it’s going to be tight and tough given the existing rivalry between both familiar sides,” he told SuperSport.
“We are prepared just waiting patiently for matchday to unleash our whole weight on Enyimba.
“We are quite hopeful that the clash will be different in term of result compared with past away results so far in the ongoing league.
“Of course, we appreciate the fact that we are yet to claim three points on the road so far in the season but something tells me the search will end at Enyimba.
“Everybody knows what is at stake more so as the encounter is coming on the heel of our home win against Sunshine Stars.
“The Umuahia turf is a neutral ground for both sides and another incentive for us to go all out to challenge for the maximum points.
“The match offers each side 50/50 opportunity to excel and I believe we will have a good song at the end of the duel.”
Heartland are 11th in the league with 17 points.
