Afonja Warriors Relish Narrow Home Win Over FC Ifeanyi Ubah

Kwara United is happy to secure a slim defeat of FC IfeanyiUbah on Match Day 6 of the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) on Sunday as head coach, Abdullahi Biffo hailed his boys’ resilience.

The Afonja Warriors came into the game off the back of a 1-0 win over Enyimba on Thursday courtesy of an early goal by Stephen Jude.

However, the Ilorin based club had it tough before securing an 86th minute goal by substitute Olawale Farayola to earn all points against the visitors.

Speaking after the win, Biffo praised his team’s mentality and show of character to grind out the win.

“Their (FC IfeanyiUbah) tactics almost paid off but my players kept on fighting. In a game like this, players might relax after they have tried their all but I give it to them for not relenting until they got the needed goal,” he told

“If the team is not creating chances, that would mean much problem. But when the team is not scoring but they are creating chances, I think the problem becomes narrowed,” he said.

“We will have to go back now and focus on goal scoring because that seems to be our problem. We play, we dominate but we are not always there to finish. No team is perfect. It is good that we know our lapses now and we will keep on working to get better with that,” he concluded.
