 Nasarawa United captain, Baba Idris is confident his team can nick points off the hosts Nembe City in Sunday's week 23 encounter this weekend.

The soft spoken former Mighty Jets defender is optimistic that if officiating is fair, then there is nothing that will stop them from picking at least a point against Nembe.

"We are rearing to go, the boys are motivated and we feel we can do the job away from home," Idris said.

"Our Federation Cup game against Enyimba should be a pointer to this. We absolutely dominated them in the first half and unfortunately Ibrahim Ibrahim was red carded in the second half which made life difficult for us."

Nasarawa United hit Nembe immediately after the Federations Cup tie with Enyimba in a bid to rest ahead of the match and Idris says this can only do them good.

"The team left Abeokuta after the Federation Cup match with Enyimba so that we could get in early, rest and prepare well for the match with Nembe City.

"They are a good side no doubt, but we can match them at their own turf ,we hope officiating will be fair to both sides so that the best team can win the game," the defender enthused.

Baba Idris, who led Nasarawa United to promotion from the Nigeria National League also expressed his desire to help his team to finish in the top half of the league by the end of the season.

"We want to finish the League in a strong position, and we need to start picking points away from home."

"Fortunately we have no injury worries, the team is complete, a point here shouldn't be out of reach I believe." he concluded.

The Lafia based Glo Premier League team popularly called "Solid Miners" are currently in 14 position on the log with 29 points from 22 matches.
