Kwara United started their new journey into the top flight on a bad note as they lost to Heartland FC at home by a lone goal on Sunday.
With two goals cancelled in the first and second half of the game for the visitors, Christian Pyagara in the 58 broke the deadlock via penalty to give Heartland their first away win.
Speaking after the encounter which was witnessed by the Deputy Governor of Kwara State, Mr kayode Alabi and the newly sworn in Commissioner for Sports and Youth Development, Miss Joana Kolo, other top public and government officials of the state.
Reacting after the game, Coach Abdullahi Biffo who alluded to his side unimpressive outing said “It’s normal in football So if you don’t play well don’t expect good results. I think Heartland deserve the victory”.
Confirming their reediness to arrest the situation and do the needful, “We still have plenty matches to play as this is just week eight, we still have more than 30 games to play”.
A very optimistic former Katsina United boss said, “I think we have one more game before the window will open so after we come back from FC Ifeanyi Ubah game in Nnewi, we will have opportunity to bring the best legs to fortify the team”.
It will be recalled that the harmony boys are taking the spot of Delta Force on the table with the formalities and modalities of the new deal still ongoing as they are only ding-dong on a provisional approval.
Kwara United will travel to Nnewi to face FC Ifeanyi Ubah who lost scandalously to run away league leader Plateau United 5-1 in Jos today on MatchDay nine and welcome Enyimba to the Kwara State Sports Complex, Ilorin on MatchDay 10.
