Rivers United 1-1 Akwa United - Bamba Bakary snatches late point for the "Pride of Rivers"


POST-MATCH REPORT

Rivers United 1-1 Akwa United - Bamba Bakary snatches late point for the "Pride of Rivers"

WHAT HAPPENED

Sometimes a point is just a point – but this was worth more than that.

Rivers United rescued a dramatic late point against Akwa United; Charles Atshimene’s second-half strike looked to have the visitors on course for a win; however, Bamba Bakary's equaliser 3 minutes from full time snatched a point.

WHAT THIS MEAN

Akwa United stay top of the league with 61 points; Rivers United drop to 5th position with 56 points.

WHAT THE MANAGER SAID

It's unfortunate. We prepared to win this game but unfortunately, we settled for 1-1. I thank God we did not loose the match because we had to come from behind to equalise that goal." 

"It was a difficult one and I think that we lost a lot of chances especially in the first half, we were very wasteful in front of goal. In the second half too, even before we scored that goal, they player that scored that goal, Bamba had already missed three chances before then so it's very unfortunate and I will say that today it ended that way, we accept the result and we will forge ahead in the league."

WHAT NEXT

Nigeria Professional Football League enters matchday 34 and Rivers United are back in action on Wednesday as guest to Jigawa Golden Stars FC in Kaduna; kick off 4pm.
