thumbnail Hello,

The handler has lamented his side missed scoring chances after they lost the Nigeria Women Premier League title to Rivers Angels on penalties in Abuja

Nasarawa Amazons coach Christopher Danjuma has blamed his side's inability to take chances for their Nigeria Women Premier League title loss to Rivers Angels in Abuja.

Despite recording his second consecutive loss to Rivers Angels after a 2016 Women's Federation Cup semi-final loss in Enugu, Danjuma picked many positives, and hints about gunning for glory in the coming season.

"I will say my team did well - second played well but we didn't take our chances. That's football for you," Danjuma told Goal.

"Penalty shootout came and we lost out. There has to be something not done well before you lose or win a game.

"But on general assessment, their mentality and their force in playing - we didn't play Rivers Angels but we just came out to play good football and gave us best.

"Ahead of new season, my top striker could not come because of her mother illness though it is not an excuse.

"I had to make shift for a striker if she had been around - the game would have a done deal.

"I know with that person around and one or two persons we would have won the match [against Rivers Angels].

"For the new season, I think the season before now we finished as third and got to Federation Cup semi-final and the season we were second and got to semi-final in the Federation Cup.

"From the teams we are playing and keep up with all the girls, we should be having all the trophies in the new season."
