MFM FC interim coach Olalekan Gabriel has a number of things to consider ahead of the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) week 11 tie with Adamawa United at the Agege Stadium on Sunday.
After the defeat to Pillars, it’s important for the former Union Bank striker to keep spirits high and focus hard on that game against Adamawa United.
Here are five things he’ll likely be mulling over this weekend.
Lifting morale of the boys is very important for the soft spoken coach as the Olukoya Boys haven’t won since day 3.
Get Elijah more involved
In the loss to Pillars, the most important player for MFM FC was Akanni Elijah. The youngster was at the heart of anything positive done by the Lagos side in Kaduna. He will be crucial for MFM on Sunday.
One problem the coach needs to address is having a goal machine. The team has managed just five goals at the Soccer Temple this season. This is very worrisome. A goal poacher will help fix this.
MFM FC haven’t won a game at home since 10th January with the victory against Sunshine Stars. That’s a trend Olalekan Gabriel has to change quickly as MFM FC look to climb up the table.
There is a lot of speculation at the moment about Ebenezer Odeyemi coming into the team having been excluded against Pillars. It will be interesting to see if he makes the match day squad against Adamawa United.
