He noted that the team would improve its scoring efforts in the next two games, so as to wipe out the club’s goal deficit and be in good stead to compete with rivals.

He urged the club’s supporters to rally round the team to achieve the dream, saying the fans’ return to the stadium had boosted the morale of his players.

His Nasarawa United counterpart, Bala Nikyu, on his part said the game was good and Kwara United were a better side by triumphing over his team.
