NPFL: Enyimba boss, Finidi disappointed with home draw against Akwa United

Enyimba head coach, George Finidi can’t hide his disappointment after his side were held to a 0-0 draw at home by Akwa United on Wednesday.

The eight-time champions were looking to record their second win of the campaign after beating Nasarawa United 2-1 on the opening day.

But Akwa United put up a strong fight in the game.

Chibuike Nwaiwu and Chijoke Mbaoma wasted good chances for the Aba giants.

Finidi was left to rue the missed chances in the keenly contested encounter.

“We allowed them to outplay us in the first half but change things after the break. That should have been our approach from the beginning,” Finidi told the club’s media.

“We are not happy with the one point we got from the game but that’s a lesson for us

“We didn’t concede. The two centre-backs did well. That’s the only positive we can take from the game.

“We have to improve our mentality. This is Enyimba. Clubs will come here with the sole aim of beating us. They will be motivated when they play against us.

“Our mindset must change when we are playing home games. That’s what we have to do henceforth.”
