Ogunbote says victory over Heartland a sign of improvement

11 August 2015, 14:24

Ibadan - The Glo Nigerian Premier League has recorded its 20th win on the road in the current season with coach Gbenga Ogunbote’s 3SC picking the maximum point at Heartland FC in Owerri with a 3-1 win in a week 22 tie.

Considering that in the last two seasons, the number of wins on the road in the league has continued to increase; 18 wins on the road in 2013 and 25 in 2014. This term, 20 wins away from home have been recorded already and it looks like more wins will still be recorded.

Ogunbote, who took over at Oluyole Warriors in June, maintained that he'd preferred not to see the win over Heartland FC as a revenge but instead as positive improvement on his team.

"I don't want to see the win over Heartland as a revenge but as an improvement for us (3SC). To have scored three goals away from home is huge, but we hope we can get the wisdom to manage this success," Ogunbote said.

3SC has struggled at the base of the NPFL log at the early stage of this season but since the management brought in the former Sharks FC and Sunshine Stars coach, the Oluyole Warriors have left the red zone on the log.

After enduring a tough battle at home in a week 21 tie against Wikki Tourist where the Ibadan base team won 2-1, the next battle was against a team that knows how to handle 3SC. Twice the Naze Millionaires have beaten 3SC at the Lekan Salami stadium and it looked as though another walk over will be recorded when the Oluyole Warriors visit Heartland for the reverse fixture.
