Ogun­bote: Pil­lars win re­news Eny­imba’s hope

Daily Trust - - SPORT -

Gbenga Ogun­bote be­lieves Eny­imba’s home win against Kano Pil­lars has re­newed their hope of end­ing the sea­son among the top three.

The Peo­ple’s Ele­phant re­lied on a 71st minute Mfon Udoh strike from the penalty spot to ac­quire max­i­mum points.

“We are happy with these im­por­tant three points and we are cer­tain it will take us closer to our as­pi­ra­tion to end the sea­son in the top three,” Ogun­bote told Goal.

“It was a tough match and my boys gave ev­ery­thing for it to get the points. “Kano Pil­lars gave a good ac­count of them­selves and from the way they pre­pared for the game we knew they won’t give up eas­ily.

“We will take up the re­sult from here and ap­proach our next away tie with MFM even more se­ri­ous than this know­ing that an away win could change the com­plex­ity of the league ta­ble.”

The Aba gi­ants are fourth on the league ta­ble with 50 points from 32 matches.
