“I am not very happy with the match. But I am happy that the match ended without rancour, because we had earlier assured the match officials that there would be no problem.

“My players have not lived up to expectations, because if they had performed well, they would have scored not less than six goals, even though the game came with tension.

“When you are down the ladder and playing at home, there is always tension for you to win and we will talk to them to ensure they are psychologically fit before the next match,’’ he said.

Kabiru Dogo, the coach of Nasarawa United, on his part commended Wikki Tourists for gaining the game’s three points. “I don't have much to say.

“I know my boys played very well. But we will go back home and correct our mistakes before our next match," he said.
