NPFL: Akwa United were tactically disciplined against Insurance – Osho
Akwa United head coach, Fatai Osho, says his players were tactically disciplined in the 0-0 draw against Bendel Insurance on Sunday.
The 2021 champions put up a brilliant performance to secure their first point in an away game this season.
The Promise Keepers were under pressure going into the game after failing to record a win in their opening four games this season.
“You can’t take anything away from Bendel Insurance team because they are well organized, I can remember vividly how they played in the super-six championship playoffs in Lagos at the end of last season,” Osho told the club’s official website.
“They still have the same coach and maintain the same playing philosophy, so we came prepared with the knowledge of the team and we told our players what to do to slow them down while looking for the chance to hit them offensively.”
Akwa United remain bottom of the log despite the result.
The Uyo club will next face Gombe United on Wednesday.
