Ocean Boys are broke



Lack of funds has been spotted as the core reason NPL basement side, Ocean Boys failed to honour Matchday 31 at Kano Pillars on Sunday.

Pillars claimed a walk-over after Ocean Boys failed to show up at the Sani Abacha Stadium, Kano for the encounter, the three points and three goals have upped the Pyramid City side points to 49 same as leaders, Enugu Rangers.

Stand-in coach, Ada Gwegwe told SuperSport.com that it was regrettable they did not honour the match that held chance of picking at least a point.

"Ocean Boys are passing through difficult time, fund was the problem.

"Part of the money meant for the game at Pillars got missing when we're robbed on our way to Benin to play Sunshine Stars in the rescheduled Week 24 game last Thursday.

"The management had promised to raise another money to enable us travel to Kano but it didn't come through.

"It's sad we didn't honour the game who knows we may have picked vital points to improve on our position on the log."

Gwegwe said his wards will make up the loss with the mid-week's Matchday 32 against visiting Kwara United.

"We've to boost the players morale to give us victory against Kwara United.

"Since we're back home in Yenagoa we'll try to pick the three points.

"We're at the bottom at the moment, it doesn't make anybody happy, we'll continue to try our best with hope of surviving the drop," he said.
