There wasn’t a blog yesterday or should I say that the blog never got here but that’s what is obtainable from man-mades.
We’re still happy with yesterday with almost every footballing thing that happened in the last couple of days except for those who share their allegiance with some sides domiciled in the British isles.
We defeated our hard fighting little brothers again in a ‘home’ fixture. This has always been our toughest derby of all the clubs in the Orient and those around us. A Dimgba turned up for a third time to get into the score sheet and everyone else made sure it was all that was needed.
Aigbogun 2.0 opted for the same lineup that got a draw in Port Harcourt in the weekend with Leonard and Chukwude in for the injured Abalogu and suspended Nonso. We lost the duo of Farouk and Onoalapo to injury in the first half with Ojo and Governor replacing them. Nelson had to be replaced by Anaemena towards the end of the game too. What a huge injury concern!
Deciding that the injury disappointment won’t deter us, we tried to get going but the warriors fought on with similar strength in the first half, but the second was all Enyimba. It was a show of intent which finally paid off as Chukwude pulled out a decent set piece strike to put the ball beyond the hapless Ekoi in goal and get us ahead. The goal spurred our visitors to push for a reply but it wasn’t meant to be as the game finally ended that way. 1-0. Our second win in three home games.
Match winner, Dimgba couldn’t just stop expressing how so good he felt with everything. His manager, Aigbogun 2.0 was grateful to his players who gave everything and worked hard for the victory.
He went further to comment on his injury worries, stating that some players are gradually returning to fitness and will feature when they are back but the ones at his disposal now are making stakes in the team for themselves
We travel to Maiduguri to tackle Elkanemi and just as Aigbogun 2.0 concluded in his post match comments, “Every game we go to, we want to win”!
