The head coach of Osun Utd., Olatunji Baruwa has exhorted his wards to remain focus and develop a strong character following the team’s resurgence after strings of poor results.
Recall that, Omoluabi Giants only garnered a point from their game involving Gateway Utd, Bendel Insurance, Abeokuta Stomers and Adoration FC.
Again, Baruwa tutored side have failed to register any goal in the first half at home to the dismay of die hard supporters. The story remain unchanged as the team welcomed J_Atete FC in matchday 10 of Nigeria National League.
The contest decided at the mainbowl of Obafemi Awolowo University football pitch in lle-lfe saw the visitors fluffed a glorious moment inside ten minutes as God’stime Edewor’s pointblank delivery from the edge of the area agonizingly sails inches wide.
Immediately after the break, the host rejigged their personnel and it yielded instant impact.
Substitute, Habeeb Owolabi sent the host infront from a rebound, pint sized winger Quozeem Raheem had earlier dispatched a ferocious rockets which Efe Toke in goal couldn’t held on to and former Rehoboth FC forward smashed it home from close range to register his fourth goal of the current campaign at the stroke of fifty minutes.
The goal was all that matter as the visitors’ threatening moves were brilliantly and constantly kept at bay by resolute pairings of Akilapa Olusola and Aminu at the back.
Speaking to the media afterwards, Baruwa who couldn’t hide his affection remarked thus; ” we are delighted with the final score line after giving out points cheaply in our previous encounters.
“Big kudos to the boys for their efforts. We will continue to work hard and leave other distractions to achieve our goals. The three points will restore our confidence as we seek to reclaim the lost points henceforth, we know where we belong and where we aim to finish, until we get there, we won’t relent.”
Believe and Achieve side will hit the road once more as the first round draw curtains by the weekend. Ibom Youth who lost on the road shall welcome Omoluabi Giants.
