Enyimba boss happy with side's performance

Reacting after the win, a relieved Finidi stated that he was glad his side prevented El Kanemi from having any edge in the second half.

“It’s always good to score in the first half, you know in the Nigerian league, if you don’t score in the first half, the opponents will start using delay tactics or whatever can be done to achieve the result,” Finidi told

“But when you score, they will come out more. We could have won the game with more goals, but we didn’t take our chances.
