Warri Wolves Football Club will return to Lagos this morning aboard Royal Air Maroc and move straight to Kano to confront Kano Pillars on Thursday in a re-scheduled match.
The team which lost to A. C. Bizertin in Tunis on Sunday afternoon have decided to put the loss behind them and concentrate on the league and the forthcoming Federation Cup.
Rising from a meeting with the players on Sunday evening, head coach, Paul Aigbogun, asked the players to brace up for the challenge ahead as they will be playing three matches within seven days.
The team will play Kano Pillars on Thursday in Kano, move to Warri to have a date with newly promoted Giwa FC on Sunday at the Warri Township Stadium and then, clash with Enyimba on Wednesday in Warri next week.
Aigbogun said the team was unlucky not to have scaled through, coupled with the politics of the game which was glaring and advised the boys to put the loss behind them and remain focused towards the league and any other assignment that might come their way.
“Let me commend you for what you have done against all odds as it was glaring that politics was at play here. The fans applauded you at the end of the match and everybody knew that you did not deserve to go out at this stage. However, we need to quickly put that loss behind us and focus our attention on the league. We are going to play three matches within seven day starting with Kano Pillars on Thursday in Kano, then, Giwa FC in Warri on Sunday before confronting Enyimba at the same venue on Wednesday. We need to get good results from these matches,” Aigbogun stressed.No tags for this post.
