The Solid Miners had before that game beaten Abia Warriors and Delta Force and were in danger of having their winning streak halted against the Anambra Warriors who have only lost twice in their away trips before the game but Nasarawa United’s Anas Yusuf’s goal in the 60th minute separated both teams at the end of the regulation time in Lafia.
Galadima was in goal for the game and he kept his fifth clean sheet of the season and he asserted that they knew that only the three points would be acceptable in their bold determination to race further away from the relegation zone.
“It was a sweet home win for us but it did not come easily like that because of the opponents we faced on Sunday: FC IfeanyiUbah and we had to give the game our best shots to ensure that we pick the three points,” Galadima told GOAL.
“We knew that to win three straight games in the league would be difficult and we worked very hard for it. We were fortunate to have two home games on the trot and the win over Delta Force gave us the hope that we can beat FC IfeanyiUbah even with the odd goal. I have to commend all the players for the good job they did.
“We are no longer worried about the relegation battle because we are some points away from it and we can approach our next game with Heartland with high hope that we can still secure at least a point.”
Nasarawa United are in the fifth position in the league table with 22 points from 14 games and they are six points away from the relegation zone with only eight matches to the end of the regular season.
