Katsina United seal promotion to NPFL
The handler says his side's blunders were responsible for their narrow defeat against Henry Makinwa's men in Ilorin on Sunday

Katsina United head coach Baldwin Bazuaye has admitted his side's mistakes were behind their 1-0 defeat to ABS FC at the Ilorin Township Stadium on Sunday.

Adeshina Gata's lone strike condemned the Katsina-based outfit to their third defeat away from home this season, but the trainer insists his side gave a good account of themselves.

"ABS FC is a sound team. We played together in Nigeria National League Super Four tournament," Bazuaye told media.

“My boys didn't play well in the first half but we came out with a better performance in the second half. It is just because of one or two mistakes that we made. 

"My team played well but some few lapses we made during the game made us lose today [on Sunday], myself and colleagues will work on it.”

The defeat means Katsina United slip to ninth and will face Rivers United in a Week 13 encounter at the Katsina Township Stadium.
