Sports NPFL: Dolphins Coach Confident His Side Will Finish Tops

Dolphins FC coach, Stanley Eguma has vowed that his side's recent poor run in the Nigeria Professional Football League will soon be a thing of the past, blaming it on loss of concentration on the part of his players at critical moments.

The former NPFL champions were beaten 3-1 by Heartland FC in Oba on Sunday, insisting that his side still have a good chance to finish tops this season.

"If not for loss of concentration, we could have gotten something out of some matches we played recently. We are confident these strings of poor result will be put behind before the end of the first half of the season", Eguma promised.

"We know that it is not over, we still have a couple of games, with 22 matches left, I still believe that anything is possible. Actually it has not been good for us in recent times and we have not been in this kind of situation for a while. The situation is one we can always come out from. We will work very hard to come out of the situation", Eguma added on a positive note.

The coach also said that the expulsion of Godbless Asamoah, late in the second half, for a second bookable offence, contributed to his team's misfortune in Oba.

"We actually played well and we deserved a better outcome. Unfortunately the red card to Asamoah dampened our morale. Playing short one affected our game and If not for that, I think It was a game we gave our best, because the players started well", he further explained.

The defeat to the Owerri side, put Eguma's men in a difficult situation, further down the relegation zone, as the first round of the league draws to a close. Dolphins are placed 19th on the log, after amassing 14 points from 17 games. LMC
