Gombe United goalkeeper Itodo Akor was delighted with their performance for draw at Remo Stars.
The Savannah Scorpions captain kept his fifth clean sheet for the season during their 0-0 stalemate on Saturday.
Top goalkeepers playing often come under scrutiny, with their ability coming under question as they themselves come less under question from opposition forwards. It is therefore the mark of top shotstoppers at big games to necessarily make lots of saves when called upon, have the focus to be able to switch on and avert the danger.
Itodo made a total of 6 saves and four aerial claims during the match and operated at a pass accuracy of 93.1% success.
In order for Gombe United to be the formidable force that they were for the previous season, stability at the back is paramount and the form of Itodo Akor between the sticks is key.
“It’s good for the whole team. It’s not just the goalkeeper’s work but the work of the whole team,” Itodo told Lodgexpress official website post-game.
“We have to defend together and attack together. It’s very difficult to score against us.
“I always remained calm, I know what I’m worth.
“A goalkeeper of my level expects to stop more.
“I felt good and the sun always rises and I never lost confidence.”
