The former Plateau United gaffer reflected on his side’s performance and ambition for the 2023/24 campaign.

“Looking at the game against Enyimba, I give it to them as they have been together for a longer period. At the same time, I commend my players for the way we played in containing them. But for the last-minute mistake, the result would have been there for all to see.

” We are still building and I am optimistic that we shall be ready to hold our own should the season kickoff today. Enyimba possessed more balls in the game but we created more scoring chances but took only one.”

“For the match against F.C One-Rocket, it was also very interesting as we had to feature entirely new personnel and the NNL side pushed us back but with substitutions in the second half, we took charge of the game and went ahead but a little loss of concentration gifted the equalizer. In all, I am satisfied with the output of my players.”
