Coach of MFM FC, Tony Bolus, on Friday, expressed the hope of securing an away victory against Wikki Tourists when both sides square up on the Nigeria Professional Football League, (NPFL) Match Day 16.

The Nigerian News Agency reports that the Olukoya Boys will have a date with the Giant Elephant on Sunday at the Abubakar Tafawa Balewa Stadium Bauchi.

Speaking on the match against the Bauchi-based Tourists, Bolus said that away victory was not far from the cen,occupying an already impressive away record.

“Everybody going for a match has one thing at the back of his mind and that is winning, nobody wants to lose either away or home game.

“We are going to Bauchi with positive mind of getting a win, which is not impossible because the records are there for everybody to see.

“I have been able to steady the ship because we lost some of our important players last season and we are relatively a young team.

“We are not doing badly because we are determined, we have good recruitment and I believe that we are going to get something tangible at the end of the season,”he said.

In their previous five meetings, the Bolus-tutored side has had an upper hand against the Usman Abdallah side, with MFM having three wins, one draw and one loss.

For the NPFL 2019/2020 season, MFM FC has a wining rate of 46 per cent with two away wins against Heartland FC of Owerri and Rangers International of Enugu, both with lone goal wins.

MFM has won six, drawn four and lost four in their 2019/2020 campaign, occupying 7th position on the NPFL table.
