Prime FC agrees Insurance was better



Prime FC coach, Ademola Adesina has admitted that his team were inferior to their NNL Matchday 3 opponents, Bendel Insurance by a mile.

The encounter at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium, Benin City on Saturday ended 2-0 in favour of the hosts, Insurance.

Adesina said Insurance deserved their victory over his wards.

"Insurance played better and deserved to win, we did our best but momentary loss of concentration caused us the game.

"I shouted at them during the last minutes of the game but they didn't heed the warning allowing the home side to score their second goal.

"I was angry but allowed the defeat to be since we have many matches ahead of us.

"I believe the next matches will be better and the youngsters in our midst will get into the demand of the league as quickly as we progress.

"On my side I discovered there are still lots of work to do in every department of the team. I need to work hard to bring them to the height where we won't be losing points carelessly.

"Officiating was superb, I concede defeat to Insurance, they were better and deserved to win," said the former Nigerian defender to supersport.com.

Prime FC have earned three points from three matches and the Osogbo-based side gaffer said his side are still in contention for the NNL title.

"No, it's too early for any team to lay claim of the top spot the same as it is to write off any team.

"The title race just started and I make bold to say we're very much in the race," said the 2012 Federation Cup bronze-winning coach.
