Lagos - Lobi Stars head coach Justin Tenger has admitted he sorely missed the services of strikers Arinze Obioma and Uche Ihuarulam in the clash at newcomers Gabros.
The two key players were sidelined due to varying injuries in Wednesday’s Glo Premier League match day 5 clash 0-2 loss to Gabros in Nnewi.
Tenger said his side’s weakest department in the painful defeat at the Nnewi-based side was upfront.

“Injury worries, which sidelined two of my most potent strikers, weakened our attack upfront and subsequently caused us the match at Gabros.
“Other departments performed well in the encounter but we struggled upfront.
“We could’ve ended the game with a respectable goalless draw but for the last minute loss of concentration.
“It’s quite painful to share the spoils against Sharks on home soil just on Sunday only to come down here in Nnewi to forfeit all the points.
“I’m hoping we’ll pic upk the momentum and once we achieve that nothing will stop us from recording stunning results in the league.
“We’ll quickly forget this loss, work on our weaknesses and concentrate on achieving a decent result in the next match,” said the former Akwa United coach to supersport.com.
The road-trip loss to Gabros leave the Pride of Benue's total earnings at four points from a possible 15 in the five-week old elite league.
