"It wasn’t a good game and I am not surprised because the players did not live up to expectations, I attribute it to their nonchalant attitude towards the game and that is why I say the team is not prepared psychologically,” Eguma insisted.

Meanwhile FC Ifeanyi Ubah were glad to have forced their visitors, Dolphins FC to share the point at stake. Coach of the Anamabra Warriors, John Obuh maintained that his boys were determined to get a result.

“We knew we had to get something on the road especially when you consider our recent poor home form,” Obuh said.
