Supreme Court Football Club of Abuja have gauged on after the team’s first match defeat to experienced side, Kwara United in one of week two Nigeria National League, NNL matches decided at the weekend in Abuja.
A last gasp strike by the visiting side in the 87th minute fluffed spirited effort by the Supreme Court players nicknamed Apex Boys who neatly dominated the game from blast of whistle.
At various times, the Abuja-based side came close to scoring against the Ilorin team coming from Nigeria Professional Football League but got their chances thwarted in both halves in a pulsating encounter which prompted technical crew and indeed players of both clubs to sweat till the end.
Technical Adviser of Supreme Court FC, Joachim Osuji who shocked by the outcome of the match said the only goal resulted as a result of defensive complacency but assured that necessary mechanism would be put in place to correct noticeable lapses before next game.
According to Osuji whose bulk of players were newly recruited; “My team didn’t play badly, it’s just that scoring chances were not utilized. Before the season started we have been working hard and we will not rest till get what we want.
“If we can lose at home who say we can’t win away later on. So it boils down to the fact that we need to work harder.”
The Apex Boys will later this week travel all the way to Yola where they are expected to confront Adamawa United.
