Nembe City hopeful of a comeback

26 May 2014, 18:00

Lagos - Coach Gabriel Umunna of Nembe City FC on Monday said though his team had suffered a string of defeats, he was hopeful they would advance on the league table.

Umunna expressed the hope in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on his team's 3-0 loss to Enyimba FC in a Week 15 Glo Premier League match played on Sunday at the Enyimba Stadium in Aba.

The coach said they lost to Enyimba because the Aba side performed better.

“Of course, that is why we are still in the league; we are optimistic and still hopeful of moving away from our losses to getting a better position.”

“We will certainly move on and achieve results. We hope to move forward on the league table. We have many matches to play. We do not expect to lose many of our matches, we will win most of them,” Umunna said.

Mfon Udoh, who scored two goals for Enyimba in the match, said he hoped to take Enyimba once again to the CAF Champions League.

Udoh said that he had been able to score six goals in the premier league for Enyimba this season.

Bashir Abdulrahman scored the first goal for Enyimba in the first minute of the match, while Udoh scored the last two in the 26th and the 53rd minutes.
