Kwara United whip Adamawa United 2-0

30 May 2016, 14:21

Ilorin - Kwara United Football Club of Ilorin on Sunday began their 2015/2016 Nigeria National League (NNL) campaign with a 2-0 win over visiting Adamawa United FC of Yola.

The NNL week one encounter was played at the Kwara Stadium Complex in Ilorin.

The first goal of the game came in the 20th minute, after Ahmed Jimoh dribbled past two Adamawa United defenders to beat the goalkeeper to his near post.

The hosts missed some goal scoring opportunities thereafter, with Segun Alebiosu the most guilty in wasting the chances.

The visitors were however resilient for most parts of the first half, even as Ahmed Jimoh was always a threat to the Adamawa side’s defenceline.

The second half began well for the Harmony Boys as their first few touches resulted into a penalty kick, when Alebiosu's goal attempt was blocked by Adamawa United defenders.

Former Akwa Starlets winger Chukwudi Esobe missed the kick to deny the hosts the chance of doubling their lead barely a minute into the second half.

Alebiosu who missed most of the Kwara United chances however redeemed himself with the team’s second goal just five minutes before the final whistle.

Speaking after the match, coach John Obuh expressed delight that the season started on a positive note for Kwara United.

He however said the expectations of his team’s fans were unfair.

"Football is not mathematics. Just because we scored seven goals against Galadima Best on Thursday in Abuja in the Federation Cup does not mean we will score five goals today (Sunday)," the coach said.

Obuh nonetheless lamented the scoring chances his players failed to utilise during the game and assured that the technical crew would correct this before their next game.
