Technical manager of Rivers United, Stanley Eguma says his charges are bitterly disappointed following their failure to beat Abia Warriors on match day 37 of the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) but remained optimistic about his team’s chances of being crowned champions.
A plethora of missed chances by the homes side characterized United’s 0-0 draw with the Warriors in a tense contest at the Yakubu Gowon Stadium on Sunday.
Eguma has now declared that crying over spilt milk will do no good and is now training his sights on the club’s next game away to Akwa United on October 2.
“It is quite unfortunate we did not win because we prepared so well for this game.
“We missed a lot of goal scoring opportunities in both halves of the game.
“We still have a last game to play and we will try to win that game against Akwa United in Uyo,” he said.
Rivers United is currently in second place on the NPFL standings with 57 points from 35 matches and have a slim chance of winning the league but will have to score up to six goals in their last match and hope Rangers suffers a rare defeat at home.
