We were just unlucky, nothing stops us from picking all three points against Akwa United but sometimes when the hard-luck is on your way, there’s nothing you can do. I think the boys gave it all, you could see that in the second half.”

It was a difficult one because the goals just refused to come, we were not putting it right and our attempts were just inches away from the goal post, but sometimes, it’s like that, we will take the positive away from it and move on.”
