Kaduna United sinks Dolphins

19 September 2013, 09:30

Abuja - Kaduna United Football Club on Wednesday beat visiting Dolphin FC of Port Harcourt 1-0 in a week 32 Glo Premier League match played at the Kaduna Township Stadium.

The match’s first half ended goalless, in spite of hosts Kaduna United’s dominance, which was  characterised by the loss of numerous goalscoring chances.

Ali Adams, however, scored for the home side from a free-kick at the edge of the penalty box in the 78th minute of the match which witnessed heavy rainfall.

Speaking shortly after the match, Kaduna United’s coach Ben Duamlong expressed confidence in his team’s abilities to ensure they ended the season among the best.

"We can still get something from the league. This club will not be relegated, if we put in more efforts to win our upcoming matches,’’ he said.

Duamlong however expressed disappointment with his players’ inability to convert numerous goalscoring chances.

Also speaking after the match, Dolphin’s coach Stanley Eguma expressed dissatisfaction with his team, saying his players would still need to work harder.

"The aspiration for a ticket to play on the continent next season seems unattainable now. But we will struggle hard to remain in the league for the coming season,’’ he said.
