Ogunbote: 3SC will stay focused

21 September 2015, 18:02

Ibadan - The Adamasingba stadium, Ibadan saw yet another massive turnout in as many home games this season with high hopes of seeing their darling team, 3SC pick the maximum point when Akwa United came visiting in a week 30 Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) tie.

The Oluyole Warriors gaffer, Gbenga Ogunbote who some fans now call "The Anointed" in a chat with News24 at the Adamasingba Stadium confessed that the Promise Keepers from Uyo, gave them a good fight in a match that produced just one goal courtesy of 3SC captain, Seun Akinyemi who blasted a shot to roof of the net from close range few minutes into the game.

Ogunbote who was drenched due to the heavy down pour said he knew it'll be a very difficult match playing against a team who are trying to avoid drowning in the relegation water

"We knew that a loss for our visitors, Akwa United will list them in the relegation zone and thus we expected that they'll be very difficult to play. Playing against a team trying to avoid relegation isn't easy, “Ogunbote stated.

"Like we have always done, we shall take each match a step at a time. The most important thing we need is to remain focused at all time,” Ogunbote told News24.

The 2015 Federation Cup finalist, Akwa United relied more on counters but that formation only gave them a few options at goal which wasn't enough to beat 3SC experience goalkeeper, Danladi Isah.

The former Sunshine Stars and Sharks FC coach, Ogunbote will lead his men to Makurdi in week 31 to face Lobi Stars FC.
