Lagos - COD United coach, Kazeem Alabi says he was happy to record a late minute goal to beat Prime FC in a Nigeria National League game played in Lagos, but insisted the visitors should blame themselves for delay tactics.
The Wednesday clash saw home side, COD score in extra time to record a 1-0 victory
Referee Oguntoyinbo Joseph from Ekiti State added an extra eight minutes after regulation time, but COD’s goal came after 15 minutes of play, after which he sounded the final whistle.
“It was an exciting game, we created a lot of chances but could not score. If we had scored seven goals in this game, it would have been worth it.” Alabi told News24 Nigeria.
“My opponent wasted so much time which gave us the opportunity to score. They came to defend which also gave us the chance to attack all through.”
“They should have themselves to blame for wasting time, and that was the reason eight minutes was added at the end of regulation time.”
Alabi said Prime FC did not pose any threat all through the game.
“This team (Prime) is the easiest match we have played at home, they never gave us any problem because they came to defend. If not for their goalkeeper, we would have scored like five goals in this game.”
