Enyimba manager Finidi is relieved that his team has qualified for the Super Six playoffs.

Enyimba head coach Finidi George was overjoyed after his team qualified for the Nigeria Premier Football League Super Six playoffs.

On Sunday, the People's Elephant drew 1-1 with Shooting Stars in Ibadan.

The lone point was enough to get the eight-time champions into the playoffs.

A defeat would have dropped the Abia giants to fourth with Akwa United making the Super Six after their 1-0 victory against Gombe United at the Pantami Stadium.

“The players were kind of under pressure after hearing the result from the match between Akwa United and Gombe,” Finidi said after the game in Ibadan.

“The pressure is a welcome one for the young lads as it will sharpen them up for the task ahead.”

Bendel Insurance, Remo Stars and Enyimba all qualified for the NPFL Super Six playoff from Group A.
