Enyimba Int’l FC Gaffer, Coach Finidi George has insisted his team will bounce back from the unfortunate loss to Remo Stars on Wednesday.
The former Super Eagles winger made the assurance while reacting to the league champions first home league loss of the season at Enyimba Int’l Stadium, Aba.
The people’s Elephant failed to consolidate on the league winning streak as they were tamed at home by last seasons league runners up, Remo Stars in a rescheduled NPFL match day 3 encounter with former Enyimba player, Samad Kadiri nodding home the only goal of the match at the 33rd minute.
Finidi said his players were a bit sloppy in the first 25 minutes of play but that they got better in the second half expressing optimism that the team will come back from the mistake.
“I think if you look at the game, throughout the 90minutes we were the team that tried to win the game.
“I can only fault my boys in the first 25 minutes we didn’t get more aggressive. I don’t know if it was because we didn’t get a proper warming up but I think in the second half we gave our all with everything and it wasn’t possible, so we keep our heads up and think about the next match on Saturday.
“They didn’t play in the second half apart from the long balls they used, if we converted the chances we created, I don’t think we would be talking about the better team.
“We will definitely come back, I will say this is just a mistake and I think the players know it.
Normally we enter the game more aggressive in the 20 -25 minutes, we didn’t enter the game with the right attitude, i can’t really say if it’s due to the warming up but subsequently we can’t have a match without proper warming up.
“On Daniel Ekpo, I think he came in and did very well, that’s what we expect from every player, we would keep encouraging him and see how he helps us.
