Enyimba striker Victor Mbaoma has admitted that Lobi Stars was a difficult team to play after both sides battled to a 1-1 draw in Wednesday's Nigeria Professional Football League game.
Mbaoma scored his fifth goal of the season with ten minutes left to salvage a late point for Enyimba after Samad Kadiri gave Lobi the lead three minutes earlier in a Nigeria Professional Football League fixture at the Enyimba Stadium this evening.
“Very difficult game,” Mbaoma began simply.
“We just have to thank God that we didn’t lose. We can still take it since we have a game on Saturday we just have to make up for it. We have to try our best to win the game so that we can be in a better place.”
“We have been working hard. Sometimes the game is just like that – even when you give in your best you don’t get what you want. But we will keep on doing our best and I’m sure we will get it right.”
The run has left Usman Abd’Allah’s men five points off the pace at the top of the league, although with a game in hand.
Up next for Enyimba is a matchday 10 fixture against Jigawa Golden Stars on Saturday.
