Bendel Insurance head Coach, Monday Odigie is happy with his side’s start to life in the NPFL this season.

The Benin Arsenal shocked Akwa United 2-1 in the curtain raiser of the NPFL season at the Nest of Champions in Uyo on Sunday.

Goals from Imade Osenhenkoe and Ismael Sarki earned the newly promoted side maximum points on the road.

Speaking at a post-match conference the coach, Odigie stated that the victory wasn’t a fluke as they came with a perfect game plan.

“It’s a psychological thing, a team coming from the lower division, so if you are not tough you can’t stand the rigour.

“We tried to develop that and somehow we were able to hold, during the game we are under pressure, so the only way to play is to be strong mentally, physically and emotionally so that you absorbed it and just wait to take your chance.

“You don’t play a big team strength for strength, you work on your weakness that is what we did,” he said.

The league is in abridged format this season, and Odigie added that all teams are in for a tough battle.

“The abridged is the most congested league, if you look at the travels you are going to do and if you’re not adequately prepared for it, you can not stand it.

“All the teams in this group are big. The first game has come and gone, we are going to work on the mistakes we have made and wait for a stronger opposition,” He concluded.
