Allen under pressure at Bukola Babes

Coach Festus Allen (pictured), has been handed a three-game ultimatum by Bukola Babes following two recent home losses in the Nigeria Premier League (NPL).
The ultimatum on Allen and other backroom staff of the club will begin with the Week 24 game against Enyimba in Aba on June 1.
A statement from the Premiership outfit revealed that results and technical reports of the team's last four matches against Zamfara United, Kano Pillars, 3SC and Sunshine Stars have been below par.
Bukola Babes drew 1-1 with Zamfara United in Gusau, lost 0-1 to both Kano Pillars and Sunshine Stars and defeated 3SC 4-1, all at home in Bauchi.
The club expressed disappointment that Allen and his assistants could only guide Bukola Babes to earn just four points from 12.
"The management, which reviewed the outcome, results and technical reports of the last four matches played by the club against Zamfara United, Kano Pillars, Shooting Stars Sports Club and Sunshine Stars FC has expressed disappointment with the performances of the team in the matches," the statement read.
Players of the club were not left off the hook, as they have also been warned to up their game in order to ensure that Bukola Babes finish in the top four of the league.
"Equally, the players have been charged to sit up and raise their game, and return the team to winning ways, as the management hopes to finish among the first four this season," said the statement.
Bukola Babes are currently 10th on the Premier League table with 34 points from 23 matches.
