POST MATCH REACTION
Coach Arobadi Olumide ( Campos).
“It wasn’t an easy game after coming back from Abeokuta, the lads had fatigue and were stressed out which affected us in the first half as we also missed lots of scoring chances.”
“We will keep on pushing and encourage the lads to always give in their best as we hit the road again in search for our first points away from home.”
Coach Baruwa Olatunji ( Osun).
“My players lost concentration after we got the first goal in the first half, if not we would have gotten a point at least from this game as this was our aim coming here.”
” There is no superior team in the league, so I believe that we will do well as we go home to prepare adequately for our next match.”
Campos Fc will hit the road once again to square up against Abeokuta Stommers on matchday 3 at the M.K.O Abiola Stadium Abeokuta on Saturday 26th February 2022.
