After a last-gasp 1-0 defeat to Kano Pillars in the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) on Sunday, MFM FC interim coach Olalekan Gabriel said the loss was painful and his side didn’t deserve to lose.
A 95th minute strike from Fahad Usman helped Pillars pip a stubborn MFM FC side in the NPFL week 10.
The coach claimed his team did not deserve to be beaten by a stoppage-time goal from Pillars at the Ahmadu Bello Stadium.
“We worked very hard against a good side, Pillars is a strong team in Nigeria.
“My boys really gave them a good fight. We played well and conceded a last goal. It was really painful,” Olalekan Gabriel told Futbalgalore.com.ng post match.
The former Union Bank and Shooting Stars goal machine declared that the next game against Adamawa United is a must win for his wards.
“The main thing is to go back home and win the next game against Adamawa United.”
“It’s a must win game for us, we have no choice but to go back to the drawing board and get a win in our next match,” he added.
