Udoh: Akwa United's loss at home was a blessing in disguise

22 Jan 2019, 17:25
Akwa United forward Mfon Udoh has spoken about the difficulties his side experienced in their 1-0 deficit against El-Kanemi Warriors on Sunday, January 20. 

Udoh, however, added that the loss at home came as a blessing in disguise as they will look to improve their chances when they take on Kano Pillars on Wednesday, January 23.

"It was a very difficult game,  we went into the game with the hope that we were going to win the game,  but as faith could have it one point is bad for an away watch," Udoh said. 
 
"We are happy and we are glad as well too that we got the one point, rather than going back home defeated."
 
"We were optimistic about winning the match because we did put a lot of work and sacrifice, with such efforts I knew we were going to pick a point at most at the end of match which our belief paved a way and it worked out well for us."
 
"Losing our first match at home for me I would yes it’s a blessing in disguise,  it made us wake up faster to the league’s reality, it did put us on our toes, it dawned on us it that we need to work more harder."
 
Regarding settling down in Akwa United: "I will say I am still trying to settle down for now."
 
"Concerning our next match against Plateau United, I think we have paid price needed to be paid,  we have made the mistake we made and adequate correction has been done to avoid such reoccurrence."
 
"With pace at which we have picked up,  which was glaring at Kano, but in Uyo is going to be a big No!!  to even a draw,  because it will not be favourable for us,  so it’s going to be a complete win for us," Udoh concluded.
