Heartland FC's coach, Christian Obi, says he is still very optimistic that the Naze Millionaires can work their way out of the relegation zone and retain their top-flight status at the end of the current season.

The Naze Millionaires beat in-form Shooting Stars 1-0 at the Dan Anyiam Stadium in Owerri in their return game to the iconic pitch since the start of the second stanza. Obi, who dedicated the win to the club's fans, said that their constructive criticisms have brought out the best in the team. He also stated that all hands are on deck to ensure the club does not go down.

The tactician further stressed that the club would go in search of maximum points against Bendel Insurance this weekend in Benin City as they strive to close the gap on other teams above them on the league table.

"It is only God who has the final say, not humans. The club that is currently at the top of the table can't be certain they will win the league title, and nobody can say which clubs will be relegated yet.

"We have seven games to go, and anything can still happen. Heartland FC will not be relegated," Obi said philosophically shortly after the team's home win over Shooting Stars.

"I am excited and want to dedicate this victory to all Heartland FC fans. They are the reason why I am here. If they didn't push me, I would not be doing what I am doing. Because of their constructive criticism, that is why I am pushing myself to the extreme."

Obi further praised the performance of his players in the game, adding that they became exhausted towards the end of the home game with Shooting Stars because of the amount of energy they expended to ensure they kept the scoreline intact until the end of the game.

"It is humans who are playing the game of football and are bound to get tired at some point. They gave their all in the first half, but in the second half, they tried their best too. It is left for the technical crew to inject more force, and that was the reason we brought in the players that came on to help the team so that the tempo would be sustained," he further disclosed.
