Enyimba coach Usman Abd'Allah has hailed his players for getting the job done in their Nigeria Professional Football League matchday 15 tie against Kwara United on Sunday at the Enyimba International Stadium, Aba.

The People’s Elephant subdued the Harmony Boys as Stanley Dimgba scored twice to return Enyimba to winning ways following the setback of the goalless draw against Bendel Insurance.

Aside the crucial points accrued, the result posted by Enyimba has now seen them go nine matches without a defeat and Abd'Allah is happy with that record even though he insists that making it to the playoffs remains the primary target.

"I am happy with the mentality of the players because after what happened last week they were able to compose themselves and come back and prove that they can do it," Abd'Allah told the club media

"It's a very good comeback by the players. We did a lot of counseling and meetings and there's a lot of support from the management, also from the supporters.

"The team came back with this fantastic result. I'm happy with it and hope we keep on going on with this unbeaten record. This is the ninth match unbeaten. It's a record and we hope to go on. The most important thing is to get to the playoffs and we will by God's grace."

With the Kwara United fixture now done and dusted, Enyimba will be switching their attention to the Abia State FA Cup with a midweek fixture in view, before heading to Makurdi to face Lobi Stars who are also desperate for a place in the season-ending playoffs.
