Lobi Stars centre-back, Akhabue Joshua has lauded his teammates following their strong character during their Sunday’s 1-0 win over Akwa United.
Akhabue was an unused substitute in the game and told Lodgexpress during a post-game interview;
“It wasn’t an easy game to start with. At first I will have to thank God for the win. Akwa United is a good side but we had to do what needed to be done on the afternoon, we played to instructions from our technical crew and ensured we got the maximum point needed to boost our chances on the log.”
Reacting to the outcome of their matchday four in Gombe which ended in a 3-0 loss to Gombe United, Akhabue said;
“It was a huge blow to us as a team we didn’t expect what transpired in that game but as you know it’s football you either win, loose or draw and in our own case we lost and had to do everything to put smiles on the faces of our fans in our home game.
Speaking ahead of their upcoming fixtures this season, the centre-back added;
“We are going to upset more teams in their homes, we are gradually coming together as a team and we are going to take teams by surprise in the league.”
Following the outcome of the matchday six fixtures, Lobi Stars now occupy the 6th position with 8 points from five games played so far. Only three points separates them from table toppers, Remo Stars.
