This came after his team’s heartbreaking 2-0 loss to Rivers United at the Adokiye Amiesimaka Stadium in Port Harcourt, which dented their NPFL title hopes, Footballrover reports.

The match saw the Pride of Rivers dominate proceedings, with Alex Oyowah scoring the first goal in the 34th minute with a header from Kazie Enyinnaya’s excellent delivery.

Deputy Echeta then sealed the victory with a thunderous effort, finishing a brilliant team move involving Ukeme Williams, Andy Okpe, and Alex Oyowah, who finally provided the assist.

Rangers International put up a good fight, but the home side’s solid defence and swift counter-attacks proved too much for them to overcome.
