Aliko Mustapha reflected that Lobi Stars’ teamwork proved the difference against Dakkada FC in the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) week five on Sunday.
The Pride of Benue won 2-1 thanks to a late spot kick from Austin Ogunye at the Aper Aku Stadium.
Whilst called upon to make more than one notable stop on Sunday, the goalkeeper reflected on what he saw as key to the success.
“The important thing is how we all worked as a team,” Aliko told Futbalgalore.com.ng afterwards.
“On defence, when we went forward, playing on the wings…we all worked together.
“Dakkada FC are a good team, we had to be very attentive.
“Winning today is important. We’re eager to win more. We’re on the right path.”
Lobi Stars are third on the NPFL log with 10 from five games.
