The coach underlined the importance of not just winning home games but also securing victories while playing away.

It’s not just about winning this game at home; we have to be more consistent because that is the only way we can swim out of where we are on the log. We have to go for points away from home,” the coach added.

Despite the uplifting victory, Akwa United still sits in the 17th position on the league table, a spot they are determined to improve upon.

With an upcoming game against Heartland, Osho’s squad is gearing up to translate this momentum into a streak of wins, aiming for a climb up the standings.
