Nasarawa United’s Dogo blames players for FC IfeanyiUbah loss

The Solid Miners' gaffer believes they have what it takes to begin the season with a home win against the reigning champions in Lafia

Nasarawa United's Kabir Dogo insists his boys’ refusal to play to instructions in the first half culminated in their loss to FC IfeanyiUbah on Sunday.

The Solid Miners fell to a 17th minute strike from Pascal Seka and Dogo blames his players for turning dumping his plans in the early stages of the encounter.

“I will say that my boys didn’t play to instructions in the first half and when FC Ifeanyiubah got their goal quite early in the match it unsettled us and we could not recover despite the effort to get the equalizer in the second half,” Dogo told Goal.

“The players did very well in the second half and deserve at least a point but the home team held on their lead and it was the way it ended.

“We will go back home to review what we have done well and what we did not do right before our next game. It was a game we ought to have consolidated on our recent impressive form but it was not our day and we must get on with life.”

Nasarawa United are now ninth in the league standings with 47 points from 33 games. Up next is a tie against Lobi Stars in Lafia.
