Nasarawa United defender Nelson Abiam says they’re pleased after their 1-1 draw at Enyimba.
Abiam feels their deserved draw with the People’s Elephant will bring “more confidence” for Nasarawa United in the coming weeks.
“It’s good, I’m very delighted about the game today,” Abiam who made his second appearance at the club since arriving from Wikki Tourists during the mid-season transfer window told Lodgexpress official website after the game.
“Not every club can come here and get points because it’s a very difficult place to go. This result will get us into the new week with more confidence for the next game [against El-Kanemi Warriors].
“Everyone defended together and did really well, it was a team effort. It’s been good because we avoided a defeat that could have ruined everything we worked for, and made the performance meaningless. We’re very happy about this.”
Abiam was pleased to see the team recover from defeat to Remo Stars on Sunday and display defensive solidity.
“It’s not easy to prepare a game like this after the result we got against Remo Stars, but we came here to leave the match behind and did well,” continued the center-back. “We got a point and we move onto next week with confidence.”
