The win marked a significant turning point for the Noisy Lagosians, ending their seven-game winless streak and propelling them up the NPFL table, Footballrover reports.

The Valentine’s Day encounter at the Mobolaji Johnson Arena was a nail-biter; both sides had huge fighting spirit, but the home team had the day after the final whistle.

It was Clement’s decisive strike in the 52nd minute that sealed the deal for the Tech Boys.

His opportunistic steal, daring run, and clinical finish proved the difference.

Coach Offor openly acknowledged the defensive struggles that plagued Sporting Lagos in the first half of the season.

However, he hailed the impact of Jamil and Adeleke, stating that the team’s poor defence was strengthened by the duo, and the victory lightened the burden on him.

β€œThe new players came very handy in the game, especially Jamil and Adeleke. Both players helped us beef up the defence, which we have been struggling with during the course of the first round,” he said.

This crucial victory has injected fresh optimism into the Sporting Lagos camp.

Coach Offor expressed his desire to build on this momentum when the second period of the Nigerian League resumes later this weekend.
