Chidi Omeje hails AFC United comeback

30 September 2015, 11:07

Stockholm - Chidi Omeje has reflected on AFC United's 2-2 draw with Sirius on Monday night, and has admitted that his team left it late to pick up a point at Skytteholms IP.

The 25 - year - old's goal in the 89th minute sparked a comeback, with Gerbino Polo leveling the tie in stoppage time.

''We really pushed and tried to score from the beginning of the game but we were unlucky, we had couple of chances but we couldn't finish,'' Chidi Omeje told news24.

''We were down to two goals but we fought really hard and we got the late goals. I think the changes our coaches made was the biggest factor for the comeback. We deserved the point!''

With four matches before the end of the season in Sweden, Omeje is the fourth highest goalscorer in the Superettan, with nine goals to his name in 21 appearances in the division.

''To be honest, I really don't have any personal target, my only target is to help the club stay in the league and I want to do it in any possible way,'' he added.

AFC United, who sit ninth on the table, are at home to Utsikten this coming Saturday.
