Warri Wolves debunks match-fixing accusations

19 August 2014, 08:12Augustine Osayande

Abuja - Management of Warri Wolves dismissed suggestions they were beneficiaries of match-fixing during their recent victory over Kano Pillars.

A late goal secured a 2-1 victory for the Warri side but the win did not go down with their rivals following the match this past weekend.

Pillars, the champions, suggested the match officials worked to Wolves' favour.

Wolves spokesperson, Moses Etu, laughed off such reports that appeared in the media.

“We have read the reaction of Kano Pillars in a sport daily and we are surprised that they could open their mouth when they are still enmeshed in match fixing scandal as contained in the papers which leaked out from them," he said.

"When we played them in Kano, they manufactured two penalties to beat us. They know that we can handle them any day, any time. We beat them by three goals to nothing in Ilorin last year in an FA Cup, and also thrashed them by two goals to nothing in Abuja late last year in the Super Four," he added.

"They should keep quiet as we are not desperate to win the league the way they do over the years where no team has won any match in Kano. We all know the truth about them which is an open secret,” Etu said.
