Dolphins' players have vowed not to honour Sunday's Glo Premier League match day 37 clash against Enyimba at the Liberation Stadium, Port Harcourt.

The players' decision is built around the club management's non-payment of part of their signing-on fees last season as well as for the ongoing league season in form of enhanced salary. The players also claim they are owed two months salaries.

One of the players said on condition of annonymity that they have made their intention to boycott the match known to the management except their demands are urgently addressed on or before match day.

"We're ready to boycott the encounter against Enyimba on Sunday if nothing is done in good time to offset our arrears of salaries as well as signing-on-fees.

"The management is aware of our position as far as the match on Sunday is concerned.

"Since we returned from Benin in the match day 36 clash 1-3 loss at Bayelsa United we've not trained which underscores the seriousness we attach to the threat to stay away from the match if nothing is done to our satisfaction.

"So if we've not trained after four days we came back from Benin how can we play the match against Enyimba on Sunday.

"We're worried that if we don't push for the payment of our outstanding entitlements now with two matches left on the calendar it will be near impossible to get any reprieve once the season is over.

"Right now we're not concerned with the match against Enyimba on Sunday but our entitlements," said the unnamed player to supersport.com.

Dolphins are seventh on the 20-team elite league log on 54 points from a possible 108 at the end of week 36 matches.
