Crown thump Prime FC



Crown FC coach, Oladunni Oyekale has declared that his wards proved their superiority over Prime FC in Matchday 6 of the Nigeria National League (NNL) in Ibadan on Saturday.

The Ogbomoso-based side overwhelmed their hosts 2-0 to climb to the top spot of the Division B on 12 points.

Former Prime FC forward, Lekan Agunloye scored a brace in the ninth and 65th minute in the encounter to take his goals to four in two matches.

Oyekale said his side's first win on road will surely spur on his charges to more victories as the league season progresses.

"Of course, we did play better than our hosts, Prime FC. My team did better in all the departments. It was actually three goals but one was disallowed.

"Prime woke up late but the second goal completely unsettled them. They gave us a fight but like I said my wards were equal to the task.

"This is my first away win which I'm certain will take us to the top on 12 points. I've won all my home matches, I'm positive today's (Saturday's) victory will be followed by more victories," said the former Futsal Eagles' coach to supersport.com.

Oyekale said his wards are capable of keeping the top spot as long as they want.

"We'll try our best to maintain the number one position. We didn't climb to the top by stroke of luck but from hard work.

"We'll work harder to keep our place no matter the challenges coming from our rivals," he said.
