Babaganaru blames ill luck for Akwa United’s defeat to Doma

Akwa United technical adviser Mohammed Babaganaru has attributed his team’s defeat against Doma United to hard luck.

The former Gombe United tactician also blamed his players for not converting their chances in the game.

Akwa United suffered a 1-0 defeat against the Savannah Tigers at the Godswill Akpabio Stadium on Wednesday.

Emmanuel Jesam’s sixth minute goal secured all three points for Doma United.

“The outcome of this match is not what we planned. Our expectation was to use this game to consolidate on the last result we had in Jos but that is football for you,” he told the club’s media.

“I can’t believe that we didn’t score from all the chances we created in the match. I came here hoping to win this game and move the team out of the relegation zone but it turned out this way, it’s not the result we expected.

“The boys played very well and created many chances, but we were unable to convert those chances and we got punished for those missed opportunities.

“I wouldn’t know if my players were overconfident or whether they underrated their opponents.

“Despite not winning this game, we have taken lots of positives from this game and I’m sure it will really help us in the remaining matches of the season”.

Akwa United dropped to 18th position on the league table following the defeat.
