3SC coach Ogunbote hail fans after win over Nasarawa United

27 August 2015, 07:50

Abuja - 3SC coach, Gbenga Ogunbote, has appreciated Ibadan fans who came out in large number to cheer the Oluyole Warriors to victory in a week 24 rescheduled match played at the Lekan Salami Stadium on Wednesday August 26, 2015. 
After recording morale boosting win on the road against Heartland in week 22, the Oluyole Warriors went to Kano with high hopes but were thoroughly bashed 4-1 by Kano Pillars and that extended to another road trip to Ilorin where they lost by a lone goal to Kwara United. 
The home fixture against Nasarawa United pulled more attention because Nasarawa United just broke a 12 years unbeaten home record of Kano Pillars and that pulled a major concern that the Solid Miners are in a killer form.

Ogunbote's boys won by 2-1 but his first point of call was to praise the fans.
"I want to thank our supporters for standing by us especially at home. The parked stadium creates an interesting and charged atmosphere. Their support has motivated the team immensely. I love the Ibadan fans," Ogunbote spoke joyfully of the fans to News24.

Ogunbote admitted that Nasarawa United proved very difficult to beat but he praised the response of his team.

"The win over Nasarawa United was a very difficult one for us, the red card made it very difficult but that situation gave us an opportunity to switch tactics. The team shared responsibility amongst themselves after that red card but in the end we are happy we got the maximum point," Ogunbote concluded.
