Enyimba FC head coach Usman Abd’allah is delighted his side Enyimba Football Club kept their Nigeria Professional Football League playoff hopes on solid track with a goalless draw against ten-man Remo Stars at the Gateway International Stadium on Thursday evening.
Enyimba remain in third place one point ahead of fourth placed MFM after recording successive draw.
“We did very well considering the pitch. When you look at it is very difficult play on that pitch,” Usman Abd’allah said after the game.
“But all the same the boys gave their best. I think they responded well and they understood the implication of the draw we had last week (against Wikki Tourists).”
“You can see the attitude, the gut. The only change I did was about five minutes to go.”
“I think all the eleven players were there, out to finish the game because everybody give his best. Excellent performance.”
“Unfortunately we finished with a draw but it’s a good result.”
“At least we got one point and we are still hanging in the third position.”
“If we can finish the rest of the matches at that position it’s very good because that’s all we need.”
Enyimba will face Niger Tornadoes in their next game on Sunday.
