Bala Nikyu can’t explain what went wrong against Akwa United

Coach Bala Nikyu is devastated by Nasarawa United’s heavy defeat against Akwa United.


The Solid Miners suffered a devastating 6-1 loss in the rescheduled matchday twenty-four encounter at the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium, Uyo, Akwa-Ibom State, on Thursday evening.


The hosts, went ahead in the 7th minute after Danladi Umar spilled Bello Babatunde’s freekick to the path of unmarked Ubong Friday who easily tapped in from close.


The Promise Keepers increased the tally in the 17th minute – Adamu Yakubu getting teed up by Bello Babatunde.


The Promise Keepers 3-0 up in the 22nd minute after Wisdom Fernando was given enough space to breach the defense before sliding home a solo effort.


It was 4-0 two minutes before the half-hour mark as Wisdom Fernando scored his second goal of the evening, getting assisted by Bello Babatunde, with the scoreline staying that way till the break.


Nine minutes into the restart, King Osanga scored from a goal-mouth scramble to put scores at 4-1, and his second goal in two consecutive games for United since joining the club last season.


Akwa United responded and restored their four-goal cushion through Bello Babatunde before substitute, Franklin Matib, put matters to rest with a sixth goal in the 80th minute, to subject the Solid Miners to the worst result in their history.


“Well, I can’t say what exactly happened, but no player would get into the field with the intention to perform poorly.


“This is our worst outing since the season started because I never saw this coming, but we hope to overcome this as quickly as possible and set focus on the remaining league games.” Bala Nikyu said.


Despite the outrageous outcome of the game today, the Solid Miners remain unmoved on the league table with 29 points, even as Akwa United also remains static in 7th position but with a seven-point gap.
