Even though the match played at the Liberation Stadium Port Harcourt ended 1-1, Eguma, he was full of praises for the fighting spirit exhibited by the debuting players.

"I must commend my players, especially, the new players that made their debut for the team. They displayed fighting spirit and gave a good account of themselves.
