Finidi George, coach of the Enyimba team, was understandably disappointed after Wednesday’s 0-0 draw against Akwa United in Aba during the second day of the Nigeria Premier Football League.
The home team was unable to capitalise on the momentum they gained from their 2-1 victory away to Nasarawa United in the opening game, as they were held to a scoreless stalemate by the Promise Keepers.
Good opportunities for the Peoples Elephant were squandered by Chibuike Nwaiwu and Chijoke Mbaoma.
“We allowed them to outplay us in the first half but change things after the break. That should have been our approach from the beginning,”Finidi told the club’s media.
“We are not happy with the one point we got from the game but that’s a lesson for us
“We didn’t concede. The two centre-backs did well. That’s the only positive we can take from the game.
“We have to improve our mentality. This is Enyimba. Clubs will come here with the sole aim of beating us. They will be motivated when they play against us.
“Our mindset must change when we are playing home games. That’s what we have to do henceforth.”
