Coach Gbenga Ogunbote of Rangers International FC of Enugu has blamed poor pitch for the team’s 0-1 loss to Niger Tornadoes of Minna in an away match on Sunday.
Ogunbote told newsmen after the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) game at Bako Kontagora Memorial Stadium, Minna that it was a difficult match, saying the pitch was bad.
“We lost the match because it was a difficult one, although the pitch is bad but Tornadoes is also a good side. “We are not supposed to lose the game but however, we will go home and make amends in order to face our next game.
“My boys are good but you know in the game of football, sometimes you win and sometimes you lose,’’ he said.
