NPFL: MFM Coach Sad Over Draw With Lobi Stars
MFM FC were on Sunday forced to a barren draw by visiting Lobi Stars in a Nigeria Professional Football League Matchday 10 game played at the Agege Township Stadium.
The result did not please coach Fidelis Ilechukwu, who has expressed sadness over his side’s inability to score goals.
Most of the chances created were wasted by MFM FC through Akila Jesse, Waheed Akanni and Sikiru Olatunbosun.
Ilechukwu described the match result as a sad news and a sad day for the team.
“It is a sad day and bad news for us. But we can only try our best and the best is not good enough. But the midweek match (vs AS Real Bamako) did not affect the performance, we are not worn out.
“I would have expected the players who did not play in the continental fixture to perform, but it was not meant to be as they failed to spark.
“It is also too early for us to be dropping points at home. It is not good for the team in any way. But, maybe, we can be compensated in our next match against Sunshine Stars.
“The draw though is a setback, but if other big teams like Real Madrid and FC Barcelona can drop points at home, who are we not to drop points? We will go back to the drawing board to correct the situation,” Ilechukwu said.
