Despite picking a 1-1 draw against 10-man Warri Wolves, coach Fatai Osho has expressed satisfaction with his players’ effort in the rescheduled Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) encounter in Ozoro on Wednesday.
Jackson Eru superbly headed home Efe Yarhere’s sublime cross after a very good Wolves move to give the hosts the lead on 24 minutes.
Yarhere was sent off for a second bookable offence in the 43rd minute of the pulsating encounter.
Former Remo Stars skipper Victor Mbaoma delivered the leveller for Enyimba before half time.
Despite the numerical advantage, Enyimba couldn’t find the winner against a determined Wolves team.
“You have to give kudos for the players. They did very well,” Osho said after the game.
“Sometimes you can be a man down and be very strong. We experienced that in Nasarawa, we were a man down and won.”
“The response was great on the part of my players.”
Enyimba are winless in their last three games, with three draws on the trot.
“The fact that we are getting points on the road shows we aren’t dropping much.”
“We need to be more tidy at home and look at how many points the team can get on the road. That way we will be close the title,” he added.
The People’s Elephants are second on the NPFL ladder. They have picked 24 points so far.
