Niger Tornadoes defender, Adebayo Abiodun has said he is a happy man with his equaliser in the 2-1 win against Kano Pillars in top flight matchday 18 tie in Lokoja.
The strongman’s poor touch on the ball helped Mountain of Fire Miracles Ministries (MFM) FC to beat his side 2-0 in Thursday’s NPFL matchday 17 clash at the Agege Township Stadium in Lagos.
Abiodun said Kano Pillars were predictable difficult on matchday but praised his teammates for living up to expectation.
“Unarguably, I’m the happiest person in the 2-1 win against Kano Pillars in matchday 18 clash in Lokoja on Thursday.
“The own goal I gifted MFM FC in the 0-2 loss to the Lagos side in NPFL matchday 17 clash has continued to hurt me but the equaliser against Kano Pillars has come in time to amend the sore mistake and a huge relief to my soul.
“We knew the game against former champions, Kano Pillars will be difficult and it turned out exactly as predicted.
“I give kudos to my teammates to come back from one goal down to earn a deswwerved 2-1 victory.
“The victory is a great relief to the team as it has boosted our position on the log as well as confidence to finish the first term on high.
“Our focus has now shifted to Nnewi where we will confront FC IfeanyiUbah.
“We are heading into the clash with the same mentality as shown in the game against Kano Pillars.
“We will even raise our game higher aimed at earning a decent result on the last day of the first term,” said Abiodun to supersport.com.
The newcomers are 14th on the 20-team top flight on 23 points from possible 54 in the 18-week old league.
