Yinka Kelvin, acting Head Coach of Kogi United, has attributed the team 1-0 loss at TEAP FC to the poor condition of the pitch at the Old Parade Ground, Abuja.
The former Fame FC and First Bank tactician and also ex-Nigerian international goalkeeper took over the helms at Kogi United on temporary capacity following the indefinite suspension of its head coach Fatai Osho.
Kelvin, popularly known as “Number One” commended his boys for a splendid outing in spite of the loss of his first game as handlers of the Wada Boys as he declared that the club would make some departmental adjustment in the second round.
“Yes we are going to make few adjustments in the team, especially in our defense and attack, those are the major areas we are lacking depth and we do hope the few changes would help us to end well.”
“I think the NNL board has done well this season, especially with the calendar, the fixtures have been properly followed, but they can still do more to improve the league, I hope they will also do something about some league venues.
“I believe if we want our league to be more attractive, approval given to some pitches like Old Parade Ground in Abuja and Hadeija Stadium among others needs to be revisited.”
Kogi United recorded seven wins, one draw and lost seven games giving them 22 points from 15 games.
The second round of the NNL is expected to resume on May 24 when Kogi United will host TEAP FC in Lokoja.
