Akwa United flying winger, Ubong Friday will make a comeback this weekend after weeks on the sidelines.

 Friday was selected by Coach Abdul Maikaba with seventeen others for the Match Day 9 date away to newly promoted Gombe United on Sunday. 

Friday sustained an ankle injury during Match Day 2 fixture against Rivers United in Uyo and has been out of action for six weeks.

The forward who recently returned to full fitness was earlier in the week placed on extra training by coach Abdul Maikaba who seems to have been impressed with the player's fitness. 

With striker Christian Pyagbara dropped from the squad due to disciplinary related issues and winger Moses Ebiye not listed due to ill health, coach Maikaba will bank his hopes on Friday to help solve goal scoring problems for the Promise Keepers.

Ubong Friday
"Ubong Friday is an important player for us, he was the club's highest goal scorer last season, we believe he will score more goals this season because his level of development and progress has been tremendous. We are very happy to have him back in the team," said coach Maikaba.

Speaking on his return, Friday said " it was difficult missing in action so early in the season. I was praying for a quick recovery and thank God that it (the injury) has gone and I am back to full fitness, ready to play my part for the success of the team ".

The speedy winger who is playing in his third season in the Nigeria Professional Football League NPFL was the club's highest goal scorer last season with ten goals and was also the top scorer during the 2015 Federation Cup with six goal when Akwa United won her first ever major title.
