Technical  adviser of Remo Stars Football Club, Fatai Osho has backed Rivers United FC of Port Harcourt to avoid the drop with 4 matches left in the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL). 
Osho made this known to the media after his team lost 1-3 at home to the pride of Rivers in their match day 34 encounter in the Nigeria professional football League.

When asked about his  opponent’s relegation battle, Osho said; “Rivers United are good to escape relegation considering their recent form as well as their strength and depth”. 

He further went on to call on the league organisers to help teams representing Nigeria on the continent so as to have a good outing.

Rivers United after grabbing their first away win of the league season, will turn attention to the AITEO Cup which is the only way for them to get back on the continent, when they face Atete FC on Wednesday at the Yakubu Gowon stadium before welcoming 7 time league champions Enyimba on Sunday as Remo Stars travel to Bauchi to face Wikki Tourists in the week 35 round of NPFL matches.
