Three star Chikatara laments Abia Warriors home draw

05 October 2015, 21:43Israel Ojoko

Umuahia - Abia Warriors striker, Chisom Chikatara, who scored a hat-trick last weekend against visiting Enugu Rangers in a week 32 Glo Premier League encounter, said he would have preferred all the three points for his team rather than the individual glory.

Chikatara, who looked forlorn after the game despite his heroics, said Abia Warriors needed all the three points at stake to improve their standing on the league table and boost their chances of picking a continental ticket at the end of the season.

“I thank God for giving me three goals today but I would have loved it more if we won the match. For me at this time, three points is better than scoring three goals and sharing the points,” the Ibeku-Umuahia-born striker told Abia Warriors website.

The 20-year-old who have now netted 13 league goals this season and is just two goals shy of the 15 so far scored by Nasarawa United’s Esosa Igbinoba who leads the pack, noted that his team worked hard enough to grab all the three points at stake, but lamented that fate played a fast one on them as Rangers equalized to make it 3-3 during the second minute of the added three minutes in the 92nd minute.

Chikatara said Abia Warriors will not relent as they are looking forward for better outings in their future encounters, pointing out with six matches to end the season, they are still very optimistic that a continental ticket was still realizable.
