NPFL: Away Victory Thrills Rivers United Coach
Rivers United Technical Adviser Stanley Eguma has expressed great delight at the rare away win secured by his team over the weekend in Ilorin against Kwara United.
Eguma shared his post-match thoughts with the official website, www.riversunitedfc.com.ng after the compelling contest which ended 1-0 in favour of Rivers United.
“I want to congratulate my boys for the win but also credit must go to Kwara United because they also played very well, especially in the second half when they took the fight to us,” Eguma said.
“I decided to make a tactical switch late on by introducing Malachy because I knew we couldn’t just defend all through the second half and needed someone like him who could offer us a threat on the counter attack.
“In the end, it was the substitute (Malachy) who provided the assist for our winning goal,” he concluded.
The win, Rivers United’s first on the road this season, was enough to see them close the gap on the leaders, Kano Pillars to just one point.
