Speaking moments after his team was shocked to 0-1 loss at the weekend inside Old Parade Ground in Abuja by the home side TEAP, Coach Henry who remained optimistic over the chances of Supreme Court surmounting the impending challenges before it, assured that the club’s technical crew would go back to the drawing board.

While the encounter between his team and TEAP lasted, the Apex Boys as the judiciary team are fondly called took the bull by the horn and remained in control of the game until stoppage time in the first half when the centre referee awarded a penalty to TEAP after perceived infringement within the touch line.

Severally, Supreme Court’s sensational striker, Eric Eric and Defender, Henry Ochuba calculated shots on target which hit the bar.

Fresh from a two-week CAF C Coaching license organised by the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Coach Haggai maintained “this is a match we never thought of losing but all the same it happened below our expectation. My boys gave their best which many spectators applauded throughout the encounter. The result didn’t go in our favour but I know we still have a point to prove as the season progresses.

Giving critical analysis on the outcome of the crucial tie, the Supreme Court Gaffer said: “My players actually started slow with the game but after half time recess, they came into the second half with the determination to score goals. Unfortunately, they couldn’t convert the chances.

“Right now, we will go back to the drawing board and work harder. If there is any setback, it is left for the coaching crew to devise other means to get desired results. All hope is not lost. I thank the fans who have stood behind us all the while,” hr said.
