Kennedy Boboye: Akwa United unlucky in home draw vs Rangers

Akwa United coach Kennedy Boboye is hoping the Nigerian football league season is not cancelled.

Akwa United head coach Kennedy Boboye has described his team’s goalless draw with Enugu Rangers as disappointing and explained that they were unlucky not to have won the Match-day 22 game which was decided at the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium in Uyo on Monday afternoon.

Despite the goalless draw at home with Rangers, Akwa United still remain top of the NPFL table on superior goal difference. They have 41 points from 22 games and also extended their unbeaten run to twelve matches.

Boboye in a post-match interview lamented his team’s inability to secure all three points and said it was frustrating dropping two points at home.

“We were just unlucky that we dropped two points at home. Our opponents came to defend and we played more attacking football but unfortunately, we were unable to score,” Boboye told the club website.

“We pushed more players forward but Rangers came here to frustrate our plans and it worked for them. We have to go back and work on our tactical approach and ensure we score goals whenever we play.

“This game is over and we have to shift our focus to Thursday’s game against Abia Warriors in Okigwe. We are still on top but only on superior goal difference so we need to keep fighting for points in all our matches”.
