Lobi Stars seek to end draw jinx

29 April 2015, 12:41

Lagos - Lobi Stars head coach Justin Tenger is quite positive his side will soon end the tag ‘draw specialists’ in the ongoing league season, Supersport reports.

The Pride of Benue have seen their performances in five matches end in draws, with one loss in the six-week old Nigerian top flight.

Tenger said people are right to describe the side as draw specialists but insisted that they just need to win a match to change the whole colouration.

“Well, I think those who tagged us as draw specialists are right but we hope to get out of that bracket very soon.

“However, I strongly and rightly, too believe that everything is working for our own good at the moment.

“We just have to win a match to break the draw jinx and put the side on a winning stretch that will be too hard to stop.

“And the way the ongoing season is shaping up in the last six weeks, the jinx could be broken anywhere and anytime.

“The season so far has been unpredictable with the results it turned up. We’re hoping for a good result at Dolphins in Port Harcourt in Sunday’s match day 7 clash,” said the former Akwa United head coach to supersport.com.

Lobi Stars have raked in a paltry five points from maximum 18 in the six-week old Nigerian primary league.
