Despite beating Kwara United 2-0 on Matchday 2 of the new Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) season at the Soccer Temple, Agege Stadium, Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries FC (MFM FC) head coach Fidelis Ilechukwu says there’s plenty of work to do in his team.
For the first time this season, MFM FC secured a commendable victory over a more experienced team following a 49th minute own goal by Segun Alebiosu and 76th minute header from newly-signed forward Adeniji Kabiru.
Speaking after the deserved victory, Ilechukwu said: “Generally, I think we still have a lot of work to do in our team. Lapses are still showing; the compactness, combination and the ball possession are still very poor so I think we have a lot of work to do this week.
“Going forward we have to work on converting chances, first goal was an own goal, second goal was good goal. So we really need to work, if we can score goals I think we can do better than this in other games,” he said.
The manager also talked about Adeniji who capped his NPFL debut by scoring a goal with his first touch on the ball.
“I am proud of him because he was sick before today but I told him before the game that you have to prepare yourself that I might possibly use you today and he gave a good account of himself,” Ilechukwu disclosed to MFM FC media.
With the 2-0 victory, the Olukoya Boys are now second on the Group A table of the Nigerian top flight with three points from two matches.
