Coach Agoye, while reflecting on the match said, “The game ended 0-0, it could have gone either way, it could have gone the ways of Wikki – they had their chances most especially in the first half, we were very lucky not to have conceded but I think in the second half we were much better – we try to create something but unfortunately we couldn’t do enough to score a goal.

“Wikki Tourists are a strong team, physically and tactically. Normally, our game is to build from the back but we couldn’t do that due to obvious reasons and anytime we build from the back; we got the better of them. It is a very good game for us to learn and we take lessons from this game and move forward”, he added.
