Ismail Gata is optimistic his side can overcome Sunshine Stars in the week one of the 2017 Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) season.
The People's Elephants host the Owena Waves in a fierce fixture on Sunday.
Gata is confident that the two-time CAF Champions League winners can emerge victorious against Sunshine Stars at the UJ Esuene Stadium.
"Right now we have to play at our best elements, our goal is to win in Calabar," Gata told Goal.
"I am confident because the players have been working well. We drew 0-0 against Rivers United in a friendly match on Tuesday. That has given us the insight on what to expect from Sunshine Stars.
"Sunshine Stars are a team that does things in the right way, they play good football, and move from defence to attack very quickly. We have to be prepared."
The NPFL encounter between Enyimba and Sunshine Stars will take place at the UJ Esuene Stadium on Sunday. Kick off is 4pm.
