Gombe United's Augustine Oladapo is looking forward to the week one of the 2017 Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) with a trip to Katsina United on Sunday
The match against the Nigeria National League (NNL) champions will be Oladapo's official debut for the Savannah Scorpions and he is desperate to start the campaign with a win.
It is a start of a hectic schedule for Gombe United with the Scorpions welcoming Remo Stars to the Pantami International Stadium on Wednesday before a trip to Calabar to take on Enyimba.
Oladapo knows his side will have to be at their best to pick up the three points in Katsina.
"It's going to be very exciting to get into a rhythm and work every day to get improvements," Oladapo told Goal.
"The team who improves most of all during the season will win the league and we have a strong squad.
"So if we keep on playing well and developing, we will have a very good chance to win it.
"We have the Federation Cup as well, so we have a lot to fight for this season."
The NPFL battle between Gombe United and Kastina United will take place at the Karkanda Stadium on Sunday.
