They manage to get a win over Crown FC in Ikenne, extending their total points to 33.
And the sky blue stars were happy, the dream to be back in the top-flight football in Nigeria is still on.
Speaking after the win star coach, Daniel Ogunmodede is delighted with his boys performance, over his former side where is spent over 5 years, Crown FC.
“I feel super excited because the game is an emotional one for me because that is where I started my professional coaching career, I spent 7years with the club (Crown FC). If it was professional for me not to attend the game, I will have stayed away but unfortunately for me it’s not possible.
“It was a tensed game and I have happy I overcame the emotions. Kudos to my players they made it possible after playing goalless at the first half.”
“We always create chances, it is good and it would have been bad if we don’t create chances. These are young chaps, most times they are emotionally attached with what they play on the field, they get carried away and want to impress but the good thing is that they created the chances. In as much as we lose chances, it is just good that we will always put one inside the net.”
“Ogunribide started slowly but at the end he was the man of the match, and he was the man of the match in the last thirty minutes of the game. He was a little bit slow in the game, he gave them some chances they were unable to convert.”
“He responded greatly towards the end of the game he was able to come out with a very good goal and a fantastic assist, for me, he is my man of the match.”
