LBA names Ogunbote, Pyagbara April winners

Sharks duo of Christian Pyagbara (pictured) and Gbenga Ogunbote of Sharks have won the League Bloggers Awards (LBA) Player and Manager awards respectively for April.
In the players category, Pyagbara beat Saibou Badarou (Heartland), Osaguona Ighodaro (Enugu Rangers), Gbolahan Salami (Warri Wolves), Emem Eduok (Dolphins), Nnamso Edo (Akwa United) and his teammate and goalkeeper, Danladi Isah.

Pyagbara in the month under review scored three goals in the Glo Premier League including two in the road trip victory at Kaduna United and one against Nasarawa United.

He contributed to Sharks' overall performance in April which saw the Blue Angels go unbeaten in five matches and stay top of the Glo Premier League.

Ogunbote nicked the manager's award by edging Kelechi Emeteole (Heartland), Salisu Yusuf (El-Kanemi Warriors) and Paul Aigbogun (Warri Wolves), who were also shortlisted for the monthly award.

In April, Ogunbote guided Sharks to move into top spot of the league table and also masterminded their away win at Kaduna United while they went unbeaten in five matches (from Match Day 7 to 11).

Emeteole, who led Heartland to a seven-game unbeaten run missed out of the manager's award following his team's inability to win games with most of them being either goalless or score draws at home.
