Nduka blames his players for Sunshine loss
FC Taraba coach Nduka Ndubuisi yesterday blamed his side’s 0-1 loss to host Sunshine Stars of Akure in the ongoing Glo Nigeria Premier League match to the poor performance of his players.
The tactician said his players did not play well in a game they enjoyed the best officiating this season.
“My only regret is that on a day like this when we had the best officiating, my boys could not help their course. We were only defending; if we had played the way we played in our previous games the result would have been different.
“Honestly speaking if Nigerian referees would officiate this way the sky will be the limit for Nigeria league. If my boys were not defending whenever they get the ball it would have been better. You do not win a game by defending alone,” he said.
But his Sunshine Stars counterpart, Henry Abiodun said FC Taraba should count themselves lucky for not conceding more goals despite their defensive play.
“I am happy we won the game and have the three points in our kit, we are moving ahead though my strikers were too anxious in front of the opponent’s goal mouth,” he said.
Sunshine’s Medrano Tamedy’s 30 minute penalty goal was what separated the host and the visitor in the match handled by Referee Benjamin Odey from Abuja.
