Dolphins will fight to retain league title

05 July 2012, 11:47

Rivers - The Manager of Dolphins FC of Port Harcourt, Stanley Eguma, says the club will fight to retain the Nigeria Premier League (NPL) trophy.

Eguma told sportswriters in Port Harcourt on Wednesday after his team beat Warri Wolves 1-0 in a midweek match that the league was still open with five games to go.

``The league is still open and as defending champions, we will fight and work harder to retain the title,’’ he said.

Eguma said the match against Wolves was a tough one and that he was happy his team took advantage of the chance they had to score.

Midfielder Jeleel Ajagun had dribbled past two Wolves defenders before firing a grounder which beat goalkeeper Ambrose Vanzekin for the only goal in the 82 minute.

Wolves coach Edema Fuludu said that his team had adopted a defensive strategy to frustrate Dolphins.

``We came with a defensive approach to frustrate our opponents. The goal against us was a world-class one which could beat any goalkeeper,’’ he said.

Fuludu said the two teams played a good game.
