Dolphins glad to break winless jinx

16 July 2015, 13:14

Port Harcourt - Dolphins FC head into their Glo Premier League week 18 tie against 3SC hoping to break their eleven games without a win but it looked as though another draw will be settled for until Chiwendu Ali scored from the spot in the 48th minute to earn them all three points.

However, Dolphins FC coach, Stanley Eguma was astonished to see his team play in eleven games without recording a win.

“I thank God for the victory. It was almost becoming a surprise for us to go this far without a win. We thank God we have been able to break the jinx and hope this win will be a turning point for us,” Eguma said after the match.

3SC manager Gbenga Ogunbote maintained that his major target is to keep the Oluyole Warriors status in the apex league intact.

“The game has been won and lost and we hope the heads of our players won’t drop after this. The target given to me when I joined Shooting Stars was to ensure the team is not relegated. That is my target,” Ogunbote said.

As Dolphins FC eye a good finish in the first stanza of the league, the Pride of Rivers will take on Nasarawa United who now play their home games at the Aper Aku Stadium, Makurdi.
