A disappointing home draw against Benin Arsenal at the OAU Pitch ended the hundred percent home record of Omoluabi Giants in one of the Nigeria National League week 7 matches.
Having suffered a slim loss in the previous clash away to Gateway Utd, Olatunji Baruwa tutored side targets outright win against their guest but Insurance are resolute in scooping something from the game.
With only two adjustments to the squad that lined up against Gateway Utd., the home sides tried to impose their dominance from the blast of the whistle only to find it hard to go past the visibly determined visitors.
Deadlock remained intact as the centre referee from lmo State, Chibundu Sunny signalled the end of the first stanza. The second half saw couples of chances not utilized by both sides.
At hour mark, Habeeb Owolabi saw a premium attempt sails over the bar to the dismay of goal starved fans as he benefitted from a terrific howler from lnsurance goalie Kolawole Oladipo. That could have being a turning point in the game. The guest also saw their one on one attempt parried away by Arinze Okoro at the death as referee Sunny waves a play on earlier on, despite a rash challenge on our captain, Hakeem Olalere.
Coach Baruwa Olatunji whose back up personnels couldn’t change the situations called on the fans to remain calm. He noted that his side is capable of turning things around.
“I commend our lads for their efforts. Nothing to worry about, though not the result we wanted but better days are ahead of us. We promise our fans to bounce back into the winning ways, we know how important our home games to us.” He concluded.
Believe and Achieve side will welcome Abeokuta Stomers to Obafemi Awolowo University Football Pitch on Saturday, 26th March 2020 in week 8 league match.
