We're edging closer to league crown, says Lobi Stars FC Coach Ogagbe

Posted : 04 April 2024

The Head Coach of Lobi Stars, Eugene Agagbe, said on Wednesday that his team would continue to push for the league title after seeing his side play a 1-1 draw against Sporting Lagos FC.

Ogagbe stated that though it is still early to talk about winning the league with 10 matches to go, his side would continue to push for the league crown.

The Yes Father Boys resumed action after the National Federation Cup break with a 1-1 draw against the Tech Boys from Lagos on Match Day 28 of the Nigeria Premier Football League (NPFL).

The match, played at the Mobolaji Johnson Arena in Onikan, saw Sporting Lagos point man Junior Lokosa score the first goal in the 33rd minute of play.

As the first half ended 1-0 in favor of the Tech Boys, sloppy defending in the 61st minute allowed Lobi Stars' highest goal scorer, Tiza Iorwuese, to level the score.

Sporting Lagos tried to restore the lead, but resolute defending from the Yes Father Boys prevented another goal, even after the six minutes of added extra time.

Ogagbe further stated that he was satisfied with the energy put in by his team.

"It's too early to talk about winning the league, so we will continue to strive to play better. Gradually, the league crown is coming to Benue State. We came to Lagos with the hope of securing three points, but one point is not a bad result," he said.

The Head coach of Sporting Lagos FC, Paul Offor, however, attributed his team's grueling 1-1 stalemate against title-chasing Lobi Stars to a momentary loss of concentration on the part of the players.

Speaking on the sidelines of the game, a visibly dissatisfied Coach Offor said it was a painful two-point loss for the team.

"It is a two-point loss and a momentary loss of concentration on the part of the players which made us concede the goal we were not expected to. We tried to fight back but again missed a lot of chances. We got punished because we missed our chances.

"The boys did not fail to listen to instructions, but we had the opportunity to go two goals up in the first half which we failed to convert. We will go back to the drawing board because we want to finish above the mid-table, but we can't achieve that by talking; we have to work for it," he said.
