Sunshine Stars of Akure gaffer, Gbenga Ogunbote is critical of his players following their defeat to Akwa United at the Godswill Akpabio Stadium on Sunday.
The Owena Whales suffered a 2-1 defeat against the Promise Keepers to continue their terrible run of form in 2021.
Charles Atsimene scored the opener for the hosts with a composed finish 10 minutes from the break, before Sadeeq Yusuf restored the parity for the visitors.
Poor defending allowed Seth Mayi to win the match for the hosts as he struck 20 minutes from time off a goalmouth scramble.
Coach Gbenga Ogunbote who handed Kehinde Adedipe and Jamiu Alimi second debut for the club was not impressed with how his side defended.
“We lost the match to a careless moment and we were unable to make up for it. That’s the price of being careless.”
“If I tell you the positives that means I am letting out my team’s strength. I will not comment on the referee; he should know why just a minute was added at end of regulation time.” He told the newsmen during the post-match conference.
The Akure landlords next host Jigawa Golden Stars on matchday 21.
