Warri Wolves, Tornadoes coaches react to week 5 result

07 March 2016, 11:26

Warri - Warri Wolves FC defeated Niger Tornadoes FC 1-0 at the Warri Township Stadium in a week five match of the 2015/2016 Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL).

The lone goal was scored by Achibe Ewenike in the fifth minute.

Thereafter, the home team made several moves to increase the tally but the Minna-based Niger Tornadoes stopped them at every attempt.

Niger Tornadoes also made some good efforts at scoring, but goalkeeper Dele Ajiboye was equal to the task.

During the post-match interview, coach of Warri Wolves, Peter Nieketien, said a critical analysis of their previous matches gave the team an insight into its areas of weakness.

“We looked at the match analysis of our game against Rangers International of Enugu on March 2 and I told the boys we did not play well against our opponents.

“But all I can say now is that we will continue to improve on our game.

“The players that were ineligible to feature for us in the NPFL have now been cleared and I can assure that we are going to improve,’’ Nieketien said.

In his comments, coach Abdullahi Biffo of Niger Tornadoes said he was consoling himself with the fact that the game of football could go either way.

“I told my players to watch the game for about 15 minutes before they launch out, but they did not listen.

“I told them that they were going to play under intense pressure because of the opponents’ experience with Rangers.

“We also created scoring chances that we could not convert. In fact, we did not give it our best,’’ Biffo said.
