VOLLEYBALL: ‘We will stick to game plan to beat Nigeria Customs,’ NSCDC’s Eleri boasts


Head coach of NSCDC Women’s Volleyball team, Dennis Eleri has boasted that they know the game plan to adopt against the Nigeria Customs Service and would emerge victorious in the final of the 2020 Nigeria Volleyball Super Cup slated for Wednesday in Ilorin.

NSCDC overpowered inexperienced Kada Emeralds by three sets to nil in the semi-final of the Super Cup by 25-23, 25-12 and 25-17 and they will be up against Nigeria Customs Service who eliminated Chief of Army Staff Spikers in the women’s final on Wednesday.

Eleri in a chat hinted that they were confident they would beat young Kada Emeralds in the semi-final even though they had a shaky start in the first set but ahead of the midweek final, the coach is full of optimism that they would re-enact the victory they had over Nigeria Customs Service in the final of last year’s edition when they meet again on Wednesday.

“I want to give thanks to God for giving us the victory. I knew the game won’t be difficult because Kada Emeralds are filled with young upcoming players and I knew that they won’t give us that challenge,” Eleri told www.dasportstainment247.com.

“Even though the first set was a little shaky for my girls but we overcame it. We are prepared for the final against Nigeria Customs Service that lost to us in the last year’s final.”

Speaking ahead of the final confrontation with Nigeria Customs Service, Eleri pointed out that he would be expecting a good game in the grand finale and that they will stick to the tactics they have deployed that worked for them in their previous games against the same opposition when they face again in the final on Wednesday.

“We know what to do to them and at the end of tomorrow (Wednesday) we will come out victorious. I’m expecting a very good game.

“We accord the Customs team the respect that is due to them because they are a bunch of experienced national team players. We are not going to underrate them.

“We are going to use the same tactics that we have used previously to beat them and come out winners on Wednesday.”

NSCDC and Nigeria Customs Service head into Wednesday final as the remaining unbeaten teams in the women’s category. NSCDC had won the three games they have played against Chief of Army Staff Spikers, Nigeria Immigration Service and Kada Emeralds ahead of their final duel with Nigeria Customs Service.

Nigeria Customs Service on their part triumph over Heartland Strikers, Kada Emeralds and Chief of Army Staff Spikers whom they smashed 3-0 in the semi-final.
