Mudashir Shows Class As Rocket Fails To Fly In Osogbo

Mudashir Shows over visiting FC One Rocket of Onna, Akwa Ibom state, in one of Match Day 10 of Nigeria National League, NNL.

Following Emeka Emmanuel absence, Seye Ajayi pushed forward Paul Agbor as Dayo Agbolade and Adam Rasheed supporting from the flank while Afolabi Olatubosun and Abubakar Aminu marshalled the defence.

A big task for Omoluabi Giants who needed to ease pressures following a winless streak. United showed few flashes coming close on three occasions at half-hour mark, Afolabi Olatubosun, Paul Agbor and Essien Emmanuel nearly put the host infront as expectant fans demanded more precision and improvement at the break.

Believe And Achieve' side restrategized after restart as Yemi Jacob and Ismail Ayodele replaced Adam Rasheed and exhausted Paul Agbor who was an improvised hitman. 

United announced their dominance immediately as the visitors had to deal with pressures following dangerous moves with Dayo dropping behind the line but good defending from the visitors relieved the pressures in most occasions.

Big moment finally arrives thirteen minutes after restart as Essien Emmanuel was hacked following a well measured thread from Nwachukwu Friday who kept bossing the middle with series of dangerous flashes. Fullback, Mudashir Olamide stepped up and converted the resultant setpiece from 28yards as Philip Lordful was helpless in goal for the visitor.

FC One Rocket reacted quickly but United protected the slim margin untill the closing moments when Mudashir Olamide grabbed his brace two minutes from time in a similar fashion. Friday Nwachukwu agonisingly saw his effort rattled the crossbar as Omoluabi refused Rocket to fly, in an evening to be cherished by fans.

"To be honest with you, we have been playing very well but to put the ball past the goalkeeper is the problem. We are happy with the result, we could have scored more but unlucky. We are in the market shopping for the pointman but we need to build a team where anyone can score like today. Nevertheless, we will try our best to bring in a good scorer. Away game is always difficult but we will approach the next game in Lagos with winning mindset. Today's victory means a lot to us and we are hopeful for more." Stated Seye Ajayi who's ecstatic after the match.

Osun Utd will hit the road as the last round of matches in the first stanza draw curtains next weekend, in their third trip to Lagos this term, Inter FC of Lagos who have rediscovered their form will host Omoluabi Giants.
