“The players did well just that they lost concentration half way into the game because the goal was not forthcoming.
“I think the best thing for a team was not to allow your opponent to score when you could not score.
“It seems that some of the players in the first 11 have started getting tired may be they need fresh legs.
“I believed it is time we beefed up the team with new legs, but all the same we thank God for the point because it is better than none.”
Remo Stars FC coach Olugbenga Ogunbote said that the pitch was not good for NPFL matches.
