Date: 2022-07-04

Kwara United Football Club on Sunday at the Kwara State Stadium Complex in Ilorin defeated Nasarawa United FC of Lafia 3-0 in a 2021/2022 Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) fixture.

The match had fans returning to watch the home team in a while. This was after a ban was placed on them by the League Management Company (LMC) for acts of violence by the home fans.

Samad Kadir doubled the lead for the hosts in the 49th minute, after Junior Lokosa brilliantly assisted with a superb pass.

Lokosa completed the rout after scoring the third goal in the 67th minute.

Speaking at the post-match conference, Lookman Ijaiya, the coach of Kwara United, saluted his players for playing to instructions.

He noted that the team would improve its scoring efforts in the next two games, so as to wipe out the club’s goal deficit and be in good stead to compete with rivals.

Ijaiya expressed the hope that the ticket to play in the 2022/2023 CAF Confederation Cup competition could be obtained.

He urged the club’s supporters to rally round the team to achieve the dream, saying the fans’ return to the stadium had boosted the morale of his players.

His Nasarawa United counterpart, Bala Nikyu, on his part said the game was good and Kwara United were a better side by triumphing over his team.

Kwara United now have 55 points, and are placed fourth on the log after 36 games, and will take on MFM FC of Lagos on Sunday in Ilorin.
