Lobi Stars coach, Tenger lament mistakes against Rangers

13 July 2015, 10:42

Abuja - Enugu Rangers continued their fine form from the Federation Cup round of 32 where the Flying Antelopes dismantled non-league team Kukuruku FC 3-0 in Ilorin with yet another confident performance in a week 17 Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) match played at the Nnamdi Azikiwe stadium where they nailed Lobi Stars 3-1. 

Lobi Stars FC coach, Justin Tenger though praised his team's first half performance but rue the loss of opportunities his team failed to convert. 

"This is a very disappointing result, very disappointing, no coach will accept this type of result," Tenger spoke to News24 in Enugu with a sober tone.

"The score line doesn't reflect the performance. We played so well but defensive errors cost us this match. We lost concentration and we've paid dearly for it. I blame my goalkeeper, Terkaa Malai for that third goal. When your defender is on the ball you as a goalkeeper has no business coming out of your goal area, “Tenger told News24

He however praised his team's host, Enugu Rangers: "Rangers are a fantastic side, no team is perfect, and they’ve got there flaws too but they were able to manage it well. It's sad that we failed to convert the opportunities that came our way “Tenger concluded.
