Eguma Blames Defenders Over 1-0 Loss

Published

on

The Technical  Manager of Rivers United of Port Harcourt, Stanley Eguma, has blamed his defenders for the one zero loss against Warri Wolves, on Wednesday.
He noted that the disorganisation at the backline in the second half actually caused the goal they conceded.
Eguma said this in a post match interview with Tidesports shortly after he lost to his host, on Wednesday, at Delta State Polytechnic field, Ozoro.
In spite of the defeat, Eguma commended his players for the impressive performance displayed in the game.
“It is a game of football, sometimes, it’s like that. All I found out is that the game was too physical. The two teams were too physical in the game and I think in the second half, they conceded that goal because there was defensive error,” Eguma said.
Rivers United enjoyed more than 70 percent possession in the game, but was unable to find a way past Pwadadi Paul in goal for the seasiders.
As it is, United suffered her fourth defeat of the season.
With two games at hand, Rivers United drops to 7th position on the NPFL table with 18 points from 10 matches.
