Bolowotan eye win at Insurance



Bolowotan FC coach, Samuel Olofu has said his wards will pick maximum points in their NNL Matchday 5 clash against Bendel Insurance in Benin City.

Olofu said his wards will use the tie in Benin City to prove to doubters that a good side can always pick win anywhere.

"I'm very optimistic that my wards will go all out and get a reasonable result in Benin this weekend. We're very good on away ground because of the team mentality.

"To some clubs, to some players and even their fans, they believed that getting an away victory in the Nigerian league is a tall order due to some factors which are responsible for that anyway.

"But we at Bolowotan, we're of the view that an away win in the Nigerian league is possible.

"If the likes of Mighty Jets and Adamawa United can get a convincing victory on away grounds then I see no reason we cannot get a victory in Benin," he said.

The gaffer further said the team are getting used to the terrain of the NNL and added that his wards have assured they will come back to Lagos with a stunning victory.

"You know we're new in the NNL but now we're getting used to the league and the players have vowed to get a good result in Benin.

"We almost did it against Divine Warriors in Yenagoa but lost it at the tail end of game. I believe we can get a win this time," he said.

Bolowotan defeated Apa 3-0 on Matchday 4 at the Agege Stadium, Lagos. The side are 11th on the log on five points from four matches while Bendel Insurance just picked three points from three matches.
