The gaffer rued his side's unfortunate loss to the Ikotun outfit, and he claimed that luck eluded them despite their fight

Following his side's elimination from the GTBank Principals Cup, Barnabas Eke rues Badore Community Senior Secondary School's loss to Ikotun Senior High School.

The Ajah side played the most part of the second half a man less and were able to push the game into penalties after full time ended 0-0.

But they lost three of their efforts while their Ikotun counterparts progressed to the semi-finals with a 3-2 victory.

"It was so painful. I thought my team will take this up and go home to rejoice but it has come like this, so no problem," Eke told Goal.

"My defender was the last man and it [the red card] has to be issued. Although it really affected the game because the player was playing as my main defender.

"It really affected us. We played well and fine. But you know penalty ended it and penalty is a game of luck.

"They also tried their best but got lucky via penalties."
