Bolowotan FC vexed at start



Bolowotan FC forward, Ochuko Jacob has described their goalless start to their Nigeria National League (NNL) campaign as "not the best."

The Lagos-based club played out a 0-0 draw against ten-man Unicem Rovers at the Agege Stadium on Saturday.

Jacob, who played a key role in helping Team Lagos win gold in the men's football event at the last edition of the National Sports Festival, Eko 2012, told supersport.com that Bolowotan FC missed the chance of taking all points on Matchday 1 of the NNL.

"I'm a bit disappointed because we failed to take the points. It was not the best of start from us. Yes it's our first time in the National League but I was hoping we could have started with a win. But we will take the draw and try to do better in our other games," said Jacob, who featured as a left wing forward in the draw against Unicem Rovers by coach Samuel Olofu.

Bolowotan will travel to Yenagoa to face Divine Warriors (formerly Ocean Boys) on Matchday 2 of the NNL.
