FC Ifeanyi Ubah defender, Elu Wilson has said that his side ended the 1st round of the 2016/2017 NPFL season well, because the beginning was very tough for them as results were not going their way in the first few weeks of the league.
Wilson told in an exclusive interview that finishing eighth was good as it means they are not that far away from their projected destination.
“The first round was good for us, though it was difficult for us in the beginning, towards the end we started gathering points home and away.”
“From the viewpoint of what we want to achieve at the end of the season, I believe we finished the first round strongly and we finished it very well.”
“I believe the eight position we ended in the first round is going to push us to do better in the next round.”
“We picked few points away from home because we have the belief that we can pick points anywhere if we play well, though it was unfortunate we didn’t win so many games as we wished away from home.”
