Heartland coach hails team despite loss

11 May 2015, 12:31

Enugu - Heartland head coach Erasmus Onuh-Ollotah has said his wards performed creditably well in the defeat at Enugu Rangers, Supersport reports.

The Naze Millionaires were piped 1-0 by oriental neighbours Enugu Rangers in the Glo Premier League match day 8 encounter at the Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium in Enugu.

Former Sharks marksman Onoriode Odah's second-half lone goal proved adequate to hand the Flying Antelopes the maximum three points in the hotly contested and hyped clash.

Onuh-Ollotah said his wards gave a good account of themselves as the encounter could have been anybody’s day.

“Of course, I’m not disappointed at all in the 0-1 loss to Enugu Rangers, the players adhered strictly to pre-match instructions.

“They played very well, I think they gave a good account of themselves. The encounter could have been anybody’s game, but it ended in Enugu's favour.

“We’ll go back home to continue the fight to stay afloat, there is absolutely nothing to feel ashamed about in this game,” said the former Sunshine Stars coach to supersport.com.

The defeat at neighbours Enugu Rangers leaves the Owerri outfit's total earnings at 12 points from a possible 24 in the eight-week-old Nigerian top flight.

The former ABS gaffer now has to fight for 10 points in the remaining four matches to keep his job at Heartland as mandated by the management.
