Defender Ubong Williams has admitted that he was ‘very happy’ after Abia Warriors beat MFM 1-0 on Sunday in the week 21 of the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL)
Ndifreke Effiong’s 8th goal of the season proved to be the match winner.
Williams who was an unused sub told Futbalgalore.com, “We’re really happy, these matches are really tough. They are afraid of nothing, they pressure you high up the pitch and they play well.”
“In the second half, we managed to take advantage of their mistakes and scored, but it’s always difficult for us to win here – they are difficult to beat.
“Football is like this, it offers you variants and if you go up against a tough opponent one day, on a small field and they press you – that’s what we’re working on with the Coach.”
Williams then commented on Emmanuel Deutsch’s rotation policy.
“It looks like he’s doing it with everyone, even the important players.
“We don’t like it, those of us who want to play every game, but it’s an intelligent approach and we’ll thank him at the end of the season.”
