Akwa United head coach, Fatai Osho has said he is unperturbed by the defeat of his side’s defeat to Enyimba in a pre-season friendly
The Promise Keepers suffered a 3-1 defeat against the reigning Nigeria Professional Football League champions in a pre-season friendly in Uyo on Wednesday.
The former Rivers United coach disclosed that the encounter was an opportunity to assess his team’s readiness for the new season.
Osho stressed that the match also availed the coaching staff the opportunity to try out different tactics.
“We are not necessarily looking at the outcome of this preseason game but we were more interested in our tactical approach,” he told the club’s media.
“The performance of our players against a team like Enyimba. From my assessment, we made some mistakes in the first half, my players were not aggressive enough, we created a paradise for Enyimba and we paid for it.
“In the second half, the game changed with some scoring chances.
“I’m happy that we are already working on our finishing which we are going to continue and hopefully we will sort that out in some friendly games before the commencement of the new season.”
