It will be David vs Goliath when FC Taraba welcome six-time champions Enyimba on Sunday in continuation of the Nigeria league, but Taraba chairman Tijjani Babangida has insisted they will not fear their more illustrious foes in Jalingo.

“We will not be afraid of Enyimba’s big name moreso in front of our fans,” said Babangida.

“On our good day we can beat just about any team in Jalingo and so we are really confident going into Sunday’s match.

“We have nothing to lose, but Enyimba have everything to lose if they go down against us. So, the pressure is on them and not us.”

The star attraction for the Jalingo outfit is 19-year-old Usman Mohammed, an attacking midfielder who former Ajax Amsterdam winger Babangida rates very highly.

Fidelis Saviour, who featured for Enyimba in the last campaign, will come face-to-face with his former club and he also sounded confident they will beat the two-time African champions.

Taraba are sixth on the table with six points from after home wins over Nasarawa United and El Kanemi.

However, both were narrow 1-0 wins meaning the home team have to improve on their firepower.

The newly promoted FC Taraba have received a huge boost after their salaries for two months were cleared recently.

They have also been promised a special win bonus to beat Enyimba.
