‘Wikki Tourists deserved to win’

22 October 2015, 18:52

Lagos - Wikki Tourists striker Ebenezer Odeyemi believes the Nigeria Professional Football League week 34 win over FC Ifeanyi Uba was no more than they deserve.

Uche Martins' late goal would eventually separate the sides at the Abubakar Tafawa Balewa Stadium, where the Abdul Maikaba led side matched their billing as continental ticket contenders with a dominant display against the Anambra Warriors.

Odeyemi saw his goal ruled out in a game he was a menace to the away side's backline.

And, speaking to News24 after the game, a clearly delighted Odeyemi said: “I thought we were good value, especially in the second half. We really controlled the game and it was a good result for us.

“We knew it was going to be difficult at the home stretch and that they were going to come at us more; they are a good side and obviously they are going to have some half chance.

"But overall I think we deserved to win it. I think you deserved the maximum points,” the former Kogi United goal poacher added.
