Bosso warns against complacency

15 May 2014, 17:23Israel Ojoko

Lagos - Still basking in the euphoria of their 3-1 away victory over Bayelsa United in a Glo Premier League encounter, Technical Adviser Abia Warriors, Issa Ladan Bosso has warned his boys against complacency even as they host Lobi Stars of Makurdi this weekend.

Midfielder, Ifeanyi Onyeali struck twice after Bayelsa United had gone ahead through Ebimobowei Peter before Osamudia Idehen put the icing on the cake with the third goal for the visitors.

Bosso, who watched as his boys celebrated in their Hotel in Benin, Edo state after the victory, reminded them of the enormous challenges ahead and the need to remain focused as the away victory will now attract more attention from their opponents.

He recalled that after Abia Warriors beat Enyimba International in Aba to record the first away win in this season’s campaign, his boys over celebrated and thought they have arrived only to find themselves struggling and warned that this latest away win should be consolidated upon in order to improve the club’s standing on the league table.

Bosso said he had never doubted the ability of his boys to deliver even during the trial period, adding that with the reinforcement of the team, the sky will be the limit as long as the boys remain focused and make room for improvement.

“I want you to play our subsequent matches as if the league has just started”, he told his boys.

The Niger State born tactician who took Bayelsa United to the continent last season before he crossed over to Umuahia said that part of the victory was that he knew the home team inside out, having handled them just last season and expressed gratitude to God for making it possible for Abia Warriors to be the first team to record two away wins this season.

Responding on behalf of his colleagues, stand-in captain and a son of Edo soil, Austin Obarakpo said it was a great achievement to beat Bayelsa United in their home and assured the coaches, Management and supporters of the team that better days lie ahead.

The defender said the victory will not get into their heads, pointing out that they have resolved to win their remaining matches in order to be where they want to be.
