NPFL: Enyimba Unlucky In Defeat To Remo Stars — Finidi

Enyimba head coach Finidi George has said his side deserved more from Wednesday’s Nigeria Premier Football League rescheduled matchday five encounter with Remo Stars.

The holders fell to a disappointing 1-0 loss to Daniel Ogunmodede’s side.

Samad Kadiri nodded home the winning goal in the first half.

Enyimba created a number of chances in the game but were kept at bay by Remo Stars goalkeeper Kayode Bankole.

Finidi was disappointed his team failed to convert the chances they created in the game.

“I think if you look at the game, throughout the 90minutes we were the team that tried to win the game,”Finidi said after the game.

“I can only fault my boys in the first 25 minutes we didn’t get more aggressive. I don’t know if it was because we didn’t get a proper warming up but I think in the second half we gave our all with everything and it wasn’t possible, so we keep our heads up and think about the next match on Saturday.

“They didn’t play in the second half apart from the long balls they used, if we converted the chances we created, I don’t think we would be talking about the better team.

“We will definitely come back, I will say this is just a mistake and I think the players know it.

“Normally we enter the game more aggressive in the 20 -25 minutes, we didn’t enter the game with the right attitude, I can’t really say if it’s due to the warming up but subsequently we can’t have a match without proper warming up.”

Enyimba currently occupy fifth position on the NPFL table.
