Amuneke Upset Over Ocean Boys’ Display

Head coach of Ocean Boys, Emmanuel Amuneke, was disappointed with the performance of his side at the weekend in a Week Nine game against Kwara United, which ended 1-1.

Though Amuneke’s men failed to capitalise on a first half lead after Ifeanyi Edeh poked in his second of the season and allowed the visitor to fight back in the second half, the former Nigeria international feels his side should have killed off the game before the hour mark.

“We were in control of the game for longer periods and then we scored almost close to half time. Before half-time we should have killed off our opponents before they had the chance to get back in the game but we did not and paid the price for being wasteful in front of goal. “Even in the second half, we were doing really well until the scored their goal just about 20 minutes to the end of the match. I think that was what our opponents needed to fight their way back into the game,” Amuneke told Naijaligue.blogspot.com.

The former Julius Berger Football Club coach believes that his players have learnt a few lessons from the game against Kwara United last Saturday. Amuneke also acknowledged that he and his coaching crew would have to work on the marksmanship of the team in order to improve in successive matches of the Premier League.

Ocean Boys would be travelling to Gusau, Zamfara State to face Zamfara United in a Week 10 game. The club’s gaffer, Amuneke, is keen to grab his first away win since signing for the 2006 Nigerian champion last month. “Every team will be difficult, but we will be going to Zamfara United with a positive mind and hopefully by God’s grace we can win that game,” he said.
