Technical Adviser of Akwa United FC of Uyo, Kennedy Boboye has expressed satisfaction over the outcome of his side’s Match Day 14 clash in the Nigeria Professional Football League against Plateau United FC in Jos, reports.
The Promise Keepers churned out a goalless draw against their Tin City counterparts in a keenly contested affair, and the newly appointed gaffer of the former Aiteo Cup champions believes it was not a bad effort from his lads, adding that the only outcome they never wanted from the game was a defeat.
“Getting a draw against Plateau United in Jos was a decent result, and I’m satisfied with it,” said Boboye, who is presently on a seven-match unbeaten run in the ongoing campaign.
“We worked extremely hard for the result, and what we dreaded before the game was a defeat, knowing Plateau United are also a good side, ” he added.
The former under-23 Olympic Eagles’ assistant coach paraded a three-man defence line against the Abdul Maikaba tutored side, giving strength to his midfield with more men to curtail the onslaught of his opponents, while playing a one-man attack with the aim of occasional counters, and he believes the strategy worked for his team.
“We had to play more men in the middle of the pack because we’re aware of our opponents attacking strength.
“With the pattern of football they play, the only way to reduce their strength was to have equal, or more men in the middle who are also very good with the ball, Boboye concluded.
