Rivers United captain Austine Festus says the team isn’t thinking about the title yet despite their strong position on the table.
The Port Harcourt Dwellers enjoy a seven-point lead at the top of the log with five matches remaining before the end of the campaign.
Rivers United will host Abia Warriors in a matchday 33 encounter at the Adokiye Amiesimaka Stadium, Port Harcourt on Sunday.
A win for Stanley Eguma’s side will see them consolidate their position at the summit.
Festus said he and his teammates are more focused now than when the league started.
“We are not there yet, so it is important to still keep our eyes on our target which is the title” Festus told dsmedia24.
“Plateau United are right behind us and waiting to pounce in case we make any mistake.
“I have not seen Rivers United crested on the trophy so we keep working because we are not there yet.”
