The Mogaji in Kwara State said: “I want to commend the efforts of the lads. The boys haven’t disappointed so far.”

“If the boys can match Millionaire Kwara United, then there is hope.

“We were able to achieve something in the area of stability. What I met on ground was Zero. The team is shaping up step by step. It’s not all about continental for now but having a stable team.

On the missed chances he said, “It’s a league and Marathon. We would continue to correct and adjust. By the time we get home, some players would be injected to the team and things should shape up.”
