Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries FC coach Fidelis Ilechukwu says his team is excited after their 1-0 victory over Wikki Tourists.
The Olukoya Boys claimed yet another home win on Sunday at the Soccer Temple, Agege Stadium courtesy of a 69th minute goal by substitute, Chijioke Akuneto and moved to top of the Group A table of the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL).
The visitors gave a good account of themselves in both halves as they threatened the hosts on many occasions. The first 45 minutes of the match ended goalless.
On resumption of the second half, Ilechukwu made two early tactical changes. He substituted Akanni Elijah and Balogun Alade for Akuneto and Mubarak Said.
The two substitutes combined well after 24 minutes of play. Akuneto received a low cross from Mubarak and tapped the ball in to give MFM the only goal of the game.
The head coach expressed his excitement after the victory and promised to make some corrections before his team’s next NPFL game.
“It was a fantastic win for us; before the game we talked about their team and the quality players and we analyzed them. They are a very good side, we beat them today because we prepared for it and we are very happy about it.
“It’s all about three points for now.
“You know after a game even if you win you have to look at what happened to your team during the match and you must look for a way to close the lapses even when you win or draw but now we won the game and we know that we have a lot of lapses but we will work on them and make corrections maybe tomorrow before traveling for our away match,” he told MFM FC Media.
The Lagos-based team currently sit in the first position on the Group A standings with nine points from five NPFL games.
