Ayodeji happy with Prime in defeat



Prime FC coach, Yekini Ayodeji has expressed satisfaction with his wards despite going down 0-1 to hosts, Abia Comets in Monday's NNL Matchday 7 at the Umuahia Township Stadium.

The defeat, which is the third in a row, leaves the 2012 Federation Cup bronze winners on a paltry six points from maximum of 21 points.

Ayodeji said his wards' gallant performance against Abia Comets clearly showed that they could bounce back to winning ways.

"Today's (Monday's) performance against Abia Comets is very encouraging after they fell 0-2 to Crown FC last week. The manner they quickly recovered from the shocking defeat raises hope in me that we could overcome the set back in the quickest of time. We lost 0-1 to Abia Comets but we were not outplayed or disgraced," he said to supersport.com.

Ayodeji assured his side will reclaim the points against the Matchday 8 opponents this weekend.

"We will surely make up for the points at home this weekend. Our opponents will pay for the defeat," he said.

Supersport.com gathered that officiating was at its lowest ebb as the centre referee from Anambra State awarded a questionable penalty to the home side as well as issued dubious red card to Prime FC striker, Babatunde Kazeem which killed the game for the Osogbo-based side.
