“I charged the players to forget about the poor results and
come out strongly for a convincing victory.
“I asked them to finish the match in the first half and it
worked perfectly well as we scored the goals in the first 45 minutes.
“Ikorodu United came out strongly to fight back in the
second half but we held on to finish well.
“The instruction was that if we could not score more goals
in the second half we should not let in any goals either.
“We committed the blunder against Sunshine Stars where we
threw away a two-goal lead because the players were pushing for more goals.
“We corrected our mistakes and stuck to our instructions and
it worked perfectly well for us,” the former FC Giwa coach said.
Biffo also said his side are quite positive to end their
search for an away points at Lobi Stars.For
