Dolphin’s Result Leaves Eguma Unhappy

Manager of Dolphin Football Club, Stanley Eguma, could not hide his frustration that his side once again failed to pick the maximum points in a home game for the third time this season.
The 1 – 1 draw on Saturday against Warri Wolves at the Liberation Stadium in Port Harcourt meant that Dolphin FC remains five points behind Premier League leader, Enyimba (which played Bayelsa United on Monday).
Dolphin had gone behind to Warri Wolves 29 minutes after kick off through Ekigbo Ehiosun before former Bayelsa United striker, Emma Nwachi, equalized on the 46th minute.
Eguma reacted to the result by telling that the failure to win its home games could prove decisive in the club’s ambition to qualify for one of the continental club competitions by the end of the season.
In its last three games before last weekend’s draw with Warri Wolves, the Port Harcourt-based club had won just once and drew twice.
The former Sharks Football Club coach is unimpressed by his side’s performance in the top-flight so far having picked just three points in the last three games with all ending with identical scoreline of 1 – 1.
Eguma also acknowledged that the visiting side, Warri Wolves, had stepped up its game and look like potential title contender.
“I am not impressed with the way we have dropped points. Though we are not too far away from the leaders but if we continue to drop points in no distant time we will be far away from the leaders.
“Our opponents, Warri Wolves, have done well this season so far but I believe that we can as well as step up our game to match those of teams ahead of us in the table,” he said.
However, another tough encounter awaits Eguma’s men on Wednesday when it plays host to former champion, Kano Pillars, in Port Harcourt.
Eguma said he has told his players to turn their focus to Wednesday’s game against the 2009 CAF Champions League semi-finalist.
“We have decided to put the game against Warri Wolves behind us and face that of Kano Pillars, which comes up on Wednesday. We need to get a good result in that game and the only result will be a win,” he said.
