NWFL Super Six: Whyte Laments “Bad Game” Draw vs Nasarawa Amazons

Rivers Angels once again find themselves in an unwanted situation after playing out a barren draw with Nasarawa Amazons in the match day 3 of the Nigeria Women Football League Premiership Super Six.

Both teams struggled in front of goals and had the little clear opportunities fluffed in a game where a win could have changed the fortune of both sides.

Reacting after the disappointing outcome, Rivers Angels coach, Whyte Ogbonda told journalists that it wasn’t a pleasant outcome for his team.

“The game ended goalless, I think it was such a bad game bearing in mind that these are two champions of the NWFL in previous years. We as coaches expected the match to be very tough but the result we got today wasn’t the result we expected.”

Whyte however expressed confidence in taking the remaining two games ahead of them, to get back into the discussion of winning the title.

“No team is a pushover, but we are confident that we will take the two remaining matches because I’m hoping that upsets would happen to other contenders of this championship.”

“Possession doesn’t win the match, I’m here for business and the business is football, to get goals.”

Rivers Angels who temporarily sit top of the table with 5 points will in match day 4 take on Confluence Queens. The match is scheduled for noon, Friday, September 24, at the Samson Siasia stadium, Yenagoa
