Rivers United coach, Stanley Eguma, is relieved with his side’s 3-2 victory against Ikorodu United at the Onikan Stadium in Lagos State, southwest Nigeria.
Coach Eguma who was recently handed a three-match ultimatum said that he hopes the team would consolidate on the away victory.
Reacting to his team’s performance in the Day-9 fixture of the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL), the technical adviser of Ikorodu United, Sam Okpodu, admitted that the team was struggling.
According to Okpodu, the players are still learning how to handle top flight football.
Elsewhere, Giwa FC head coach said that his team must learn how to pick away points if they must fight for continental tickets this season.
The Jos based team suffered their third defeat in eight games following a 2-0 loss to Heartland FC in Owerri.
Heartland assistant coach, Mangut Mabwas, commended his side for handling the pressure to ensure his side recorded their third win of the season.
