Abuja - Coach Fatai Osho of Kogi United FC of Lokoja has
commended the referees who officiated the club's Week Four match against
Supreme Court Football Club in Abuja.
Despite his defeat, Osho told newsmen after the club lost 1-0
to Supreme Court FC in a 2013/2014 Nigeria National League (NNL) match that the
referees did well.
A 58th minute strike from substitute Endurance Osaghai
separated the two sides in the match.
“The officiating here today (Sunday) is the best that my
club has seen so far this season and if we have this kind of officiating in all
our leagues, it will help us grow”.
“This is because this is the first time we are getting a
good officiating playing away from home”.
“And I am happy because this is what we always advocate
during our home matches. So, if we can get such kind of officiating away from
home, it is a good one,’’ Osho said.
The Kogi United FC coach however expressed disappointment at
the club’s inability to get a point from the match.
“We are highly disappointed because we came here with a lot
of expectations and confidence. We prepared well for this match, but we could
not even grab a point. It is not good for us and the whole team is not happy
about it. But we have to go back and intensify our efforts towards our next
match,'' he said.
Osho also condemned the pitch used for the match, saying
good football cannot be played on such kind of sports facility.
