New Kwara United boss hails players

16 July 2015, 12:21

Ilorin - The winning mentality that has been lacking in the ranks of Kwara United returned as newly-installed gaffer Tunde Sanni tinkered the team to a 2-1 victory against Ifeanyi Uba FC in a week 18 Glo Premier League game on Wednesday.

With the management of the club sacking coach Tunde Abdulrahman on Monday, the former DSS boss started his second stint as the head coach of the team with an away victory in at the Rojenny Stadium.

Kwara United played without fear and were resilient in their approach to the game. The Ilorin-based team fought back from a goal down to end a six-game winless run.

Okereke Maduabuchi shot the hosts ahead in the 12th minute, but the determined visitors were back on level terms through Bobga Sambo who just returned to the squad after battling with illness in recent times.

The skillful Ismaila Gata beat the offside trap to lob the ball over the goalkeeper and it was a goal that turned out to be the winner.

Coach Tunde Sanni, the man that performed the magic praised his wards for playing to instruction.

“Yes, they listened to instruction and that paid off, the coach explained.

“I'm confident we can turn things around.”

Kwara United will lock horns with Giwa FC on Sunday at the Kwara Stadium Complex in a week 19 encounter.
