Aigbogun says Enyimba's double against Kano Pillars exciting

18 July 2016, 16:40

Port Harcourt - Paul Aigbogun, Chief Coach of Enyimba FC, said his team's home and away victories against Kano Pillars in the 2015/2016 Nigeria Professional Football League season was exciting.

Enyimba had defeated Kano Pillars 2-1 at home in the first round of the ongoing NPFL.

The Aba side went on to beat the former league champions with the same margin in Port Harcourt on Sunday.

Aigbogun told newsmen after the encounter in Port Harcourt that he was happy and comfortable with the 2-1 victory over visiting the Kano Pillars.

“I thank God for the away victory earlier recorded and the home victory achieved today (Sunday). I feel very happy about it.

“Kano Pillars as a team is a very good side, especially at home. So, to beat them in their home and on our home soil too is a thing of joy," he said.

Aigbogun said he was impressed with his players’ performance, even though they were not at their best.

He however urged Enyimba fans to be patient with the team over their inconsistency, noting that they were working hard to get better results in the ongoing season.

Speaking also, the Chief Coach of Kano Pillars, Babaganaru Muhammad said he was satisfied with his players’ performance in spite of the loss.

“Generally, it was a good game. We came with a game plan, but we lost.

“You can’t win always and somebody must make a mistake for a winner to emerge. We made some mistakes and this happens sometimes," he said.

Muhammad however said his team lost because his players did not convert the goal scoring chances they created.

He said the team was still focused on winning the league title in spite of the challenges they were facing.

Ifeanyi Anaemena scored for Enyimba in the 10th minute, while Adamu Muhammed equalised a minute later via penalty.

Uche John then scored the winning goal for Enyimba in the 73rd minute.
