Ilechukwu : My Tactics No Work Against Enyimba

Coachi Lala of NPFL team MFM FC Fidelis Ilechukwu don yarn say his tactics and game plan no work for Calabar when dem face Enyimba.

Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries Football Club chop ogbono with seven-time NPFL Champions Enyimba on Saturday. Based on say dem even take one point,the oga coachi no gree say his team try when Stephen Odey's 24th minute audacious strike nearly give them victory before Ibrahim Mustapha put the Aba Elephant back into the game with an 84th minute equalizer. "I'm not happy with the result of the game not because of anything but because my tactics and formation didn't work as expected. It was a game we should have won had it been things worked according to our plans. Enyimba were just lucky.

"During the first half of the match we knew Enyimba would result to aerial balls in order to put the pressure on our team. I told my players that they must avoid losing the balls because that will cause pressure and also give Enyimba the edge. "Enyimba forced my team to a defensive play and there was nothing we could do at that point in time than to soak up the pressure and then rely on counter. We almost caught them on counter when Ifeanyi Abara raced on to a pass from Onuwa but the young boy was dispossessed. And we lost the chance to get three points in the 84th minute."

The Church team don travel enter Bauchi to cause trouble for Wikki on Wednesday for Week 9 rescheduled match.
