Huan: Taraba sad for the draw

01 October 2015, 11:46

Abuja -  John Huan Aondongu has mused that FC Taraba were downbeat to concede an equaliser to Elkanemi Warriors, even as he concedes the team were made to work.

Sunday evening saw the hosts surrender their slender lead having dominated possession for larger spells in the tension-soaked encounter.

“Elkanemi were very strong with the ball, they were very comfortable in the closing stages,” Huan has conceded to News24 this week.

“They also had to come back into the game after our goal at the start and they demanded a lot. We worked a lot, created much danger but we were somehow unlucky not to have killed the game earlier.

“No doubt they moved the ball much from one wing to the other. That required much of us in the middle.

“We were comfortable and created chances. We worked hard, and we are sad about the goal that we did concede.

“I'm still yet to believe that we drew the match but there are lots of positives to take for the future.”

“What was missing? Luck! We weren't lucky after putting much efforts into the game,” he explained.
