Lobi Stars deep-lying playmaker Chinedu Ufere hailed their performance as “fantastic” following last Sunday’s 1-0 victory over Enyimba.

“All we needed was a fantastic display before our supporters – and we got one,” said Ufere who spoke with


“I was aware of the team we’re facing and was also aware it was going to be a long afternoon but I felt we could have scored two or three before half-time.

“The game became a bit nervy in the second quarter because we knew we needed to score a goal and their goalkeeper (Ojo Olorunleke) was making it difficult. But we finally broke their stronghold and got through that spell and in the last 10 minutes, I didn’t think they made any threatening chances.

“It was emotional at the signal of the final whistle and you expect that especially when the result means you now sit just three points behind the third-placed team. The important thing is that we are fighting to secure a berth in the top four and we deserve to be there.”


Reacting to their forthcoming clash this Sunday with Sunshine Stars, Ufere added;

“The win here is a big boost for Sunday. The team’s energy in the win was superb. The big focus now is how we can replicate that into our subsequent games both home and away and hopefully we will get a positive result at Sunshine Stars.”
