Nigeria Federation Cup finalists Dolphins hit Ijebu-Ode on Wednesday in preparation for Sunday’s final against Enyimba. The former Nigeria champions said the idea behind the Ijebu-Ode training camp is for concentration just before the big game against Enyimba on Sunday, something they may not get in Port Harcourt with friends and fans of the club around them.
The team departed from Port Harcourt on Wednesday to Ijebu-Ode and will head to Lagos on Friday.
“We will have a light work out on Wednesday morning and then leave for Ijebu-Ode,” Coach Stanley Eguma said.
“Although the time is short, we believe the two days away from Port Harcourt before that crucial game will do the boys a world of good.”
Dolphins have played the Federation Cup final four times, 2001, 2004, 2006 and 2007, winning all of them against El Kanemi in 2001, against Enugu Rangers in 2004 and 2007 and against Bendel Insurance in 2006.
