Kwara United Technical Adviser, Kabiru Dogo, has blamed his team's lack of home wins on their wasted chances.

Dogo also expressed his concerns about his team's struggles with their home record in the 2023/2024 Nigeria Premier Football League (NPFL) season.

The Afonja Warriors club were held to a 0-0 draw by Rivers United in a rescheduled Nigeria Premier Football League matchday 23 encounter on Thursday.

Like in their previous home outings, the Harmony Boys totally dominated the game but hit the woodwork four times.

Kwara United have lost once and drawn six times at home in the league this season.

Reflecting on the game against Rivers United, Dogo claimed his side deserved more than a point.

“It’s a game that we really worked and planned to get three points because of the value and what we have achieved on the road so far.

“Anyone who knows the team will know that we have progressed very well, but we are always finding it difficult to get the desired results at home - that’s football because it’s one of those things.

“We accept it in good faith, and Rivers are lucky to escape with a draw.

“I believe the team is improving every day. What we have achieved outside, we have not achieved at home, but we continue to pray for success on the home ground.”

Recall that Rivers United and Kwara United played to a thrilling draw in Ilorin.

In a pulsating encounter, marked by numerous scoring opportunities for Kwara United, who struck the woodwork four times.

Rivers United’s Samson Paul had the first clear-cut chance in the 5th minute, but he failed to convert.

This was followed by another missed opportunity in the 26th minute when a through pass found Paul, but he was unable to capitalize.

The 37th minute saw a beautiful combination between Paul and Emmanuel Ogbole, but Ogbole’s shot narrowly missed the target. Just before halftime, Musa Abdulafeez was brought down near the opponent’s box, earning a free kick.

However, the opportunity was not utilized, and the teams went into the break level at 0-0.

In the second half, Emmanuel Ogbole unleashed a powerful shot in the 53rd minute, but goalkeeper Osagie made a crucial save. Osagie later required medical attention, highlighting the intensity of the match.

In the 69th minute, a beautiful piece of football distribution ended with a shot that hit the woodwork, denying Kwara United yet again. Despite the numerous chances, neither team could find the winning goal, and the match ended 0-0.

The result moves Rivers United up to 11th position on the NPFL log, while Kwara United sit in 13th position.
