Ikon Allah Boys are hoping to extend their unbeaten run on Sunday and the defender insists the Olukoya Boys cannot stop them

Andrew Ikefe has warned MFM FC not to expect anything at the Bako Kontagora Stadium, insisting Niger Tornadoes are not ready to share points with them on Sunday.

The defender has scored twice this season with his last goal handing Hamza Abara's side a late winner in their 1-0 triumph over Yobe Desert Stars as they climbed to third spot a week ago.

Following a 0-0 draw at Enugu Rangers gave Fidelis Ilechukwu's side the first away point this season, the Ikon Allah Boy insists they will put up a decent show to silence the Olukoya Boys.

"It will be a tough match playing against a team [MFM] with some experience from continental competition," Ikefe told Goal. 

"We are not scared of them in anyway but it will be a good test for us. We respect them but we’re not going allow them to get anything here because we are not Enugu Rangers.

"It is a very important match to us as it will be our last [official] game in the first round aside of outstanding match. We want to keep winning and not ready to see our unbeaten run come to an end.

"The team spirit is high and everyone in camp is raring to fight for victory against MFM. It is certainly not going to be an easy match but we will do our best to secure the three points."

A win over MFM could see Niger Tornadoes move to second on the log, further cutting the lead of table-toppers Lobi Stars to three points if they lose at Sunshine Stars this weekend.
