The Desert Scorpions’ player has charged the club’s fans to be of good behaviour henceforth so as not to put the players under pressure

Gombe United’s Austin Oladapo has appealed to the Desert Scorpions’ fans and supporters to be of good behaviour and always be patient with the team if they want them to achieve their season’s objective of remaining in the topflight at the end of the season.

Oladapo stated that he was not happy at the turn of events immediately after their 3-3 home draw against Enugu Rangers when the fans rushed to the pitch to remonstrate with the players instead of gathering to cheer them up for a good display in spite of the home draw.

The former Kwara United and FC Ifeanyiubah striker admitted that the action of their fans could continue to put them under pressure in their home matches instead of them calming down to do the job they are expected of.

“I don’t in anyway support fans hooliganism. What the fans did at the end of the match was uncalled for. Football is meant to be enjoyed but if the fans take it upon themselves to get provoked at every given chance does not augur well for the image of the club,” Oladapo told Goal.

“We must try and stem the tide if they want us to achieve our aspiration of remaining in the league at the end of the season. We the players and the coaches tried our best. We gave our all to the team and the action meted out on us at the end of the said match is not pleasant at all.”
