Katsina United midfielder Azeez Falolu was satisfied with their draw at Heartland.
Falolu played a pivotal role in their 1-1 stalemate against Heartland over the weekend.
Despite starting on the bench with Katsina United trailing 1-0, Falolu’s entry in the 65th minute proved to be a game-changer. He won a crucial corner kick, which ultimately led to Michael Ibe’s equalizing goal in the 73rd minute. Falolu’s impact from the bench helped secure an important point for his team.
He told Lodgexpress official website: “Coming here we knew it would be difficult, Heartland are fantastic and intense opponents, overall we have to take the point and move on. It is always a difficult ground to come, I would have liked a winner.
“We had a tough start after going down by a goal early into the game. The workrate and intensity was really good in the game, defensively solid and many positives too. We limited the problems they cause and went all out in the second half which resulted to our equalizer.
“Tactically we changed a little bit but not the intensity, that did not change. The front line were brilliant not only defensively but offensively they worked really hard too. That is why defensively we were so solid. We were waiting for the moment to win the ball back and find the winner but unfortunate did not get the chance to do that.”
