“We just finished playing our second friendly game against J Atete and we narrowly lost to them 2-1,” Oni told Goal.

“We had earlier beaten Delta Stars 3-1 on Tuesday but so many things set in including fatigue in our game with J Atete. We gave a good account of ourselves and were only unfortunate to lose. The two games exposed us to what we must do to correct our lapses.

“It is not easy to play two games in two days. It wasn’t about the result but to learn what we must do to improve. We have seen our mistakes and we must go back home to correct them.”
