Michael Uweru unhappy with Crown FC conversion rate

The Ajilete Boys’ goalkeeper is disturbed by the impotence of his attackers in front of goal and seeks an instant improvement in subsequent games

Goalkeeper of Crown FC, Michael Uweru has lamented his side’s inability to convert chances and has appealed for instant improvement.

Irked by his side’s poor scoring form, Uweru swallowed his disappointment with expression of delight over his team’s performance-per-game so far this season after their 1-0 loss to Nasarawa United last weekend.

“We gave them a very good fight – we put up are very good performance but our finishing needs to be better. We need our attackers to step up in scoring goals. I hope we learnt one or two lessons from the game against Nasarawa United.

“We proved our critics wrong by our game in Lafia that we are not only good at home but could do well at away matches,” Uweru told Goal.

Meanwhile, Uweru says he is fast recuperating and eager to return for the Ogbomoso club in a couple of days after being discharged from hospital with plaster around his head.

Uweru was hospitalised for injury suffered in a collision with Ngomo of Nasarawa United in Lafia.

“I’m much better now, I’m okay – I will try to do my best to recover fast and may be in a few days get back into the team,” he said.

The media officer of the team, Oyekunle Oyeleye told Goal that Umeru "will continue his rehabilitation process at the LAUTECH Teaching Hospital in Ogbomoso till he attains full recovery.”

The Ajilete Boys who are placed fifth on the Nigeria Premier League standing with nine points from six matches will host Kaduna United in a week 7 encounter in Ibadan.
