Oriental Derby Match Preview: Please guys just win, abeg!

It’s gotten to that level where we just have to use whatever means possible to appeal to our team because we are long overdue a win. We lineup against FC IfeanyiUbah this evening at 4 and nothing but a win is acceptable at this time. Only a few weeks back, we here on the blog argued that it’s about time we got wins/points on the road, if only we knew what laid in wait. 5 games in a bounce- 2 points out of a possible 15. 

People will argue that it’s about bad officiating on the road but Kano Pillars beat us on TV and we couldn’t replicate same against MFM. Against Lobi, we took the lead, got reduced to 10 men (as Shooting Stars equally were in our draw with them in Calabar) but while Lobi not only leveled, they equally got a late winner that left us empty handed. 

We’ve lost touch with the guys leading the pack and truth be told, those guys right on top are showing better coordination and fight, much more than what we are able to muster at the moment. It’s about time the coaching crew looked inwards to inquire and indeed find solutions to stop the rot and get us winning at home and unbeaten away. 

FC IfeanyiUbah with all due respect, isn’t a team that should deny us maximum points this evening but haven’t we seen enough disappointment in recent weeks? Is anyone confident enough that this team will turn up with the winning formular? We play ABS in Illorin next, aren’t they one of the sides with 100% home record? 

Perhaps we need to change the man in between the sticks. Fatau Dauda has been the keeper in the last two consecutive home games. If his own fortune is to produce draws for us, perhaps we can use him away from home where the draws are needed. Stick out Safe hands Theo back in goal and ensure we return to winning ways. 

We just need to win this evening. It’s as simple as that. Whatever formation or system that would get the job done, please get it done. Play Obiozor or Gata or Chukwude or Leonard, whoever will produce the goods, please get it done. Thank you. 

Regular updates are at the usual channels- the LMC and the club official handles. They’ve come alive on MatchDay’s – I mean the club handle. Well done but more is expected. Our website as well, please get it sorted. Thank you. 

Lest I forget, please win this evening. Please. Thank you.

Back tomorrow.
