After opening day defeat to Nasarawa United, Abia Warriors midfielder Emeka Isaac has called on fans and media alike to give his team some time.
The Umuahia Warriors began the 2018-19 Nigeria Professional Football League campaign with a 1-0 defeat, prompting early discontent.
“We must turn the page and think about the next game against Go Round,” commented Emeka Isaac to Futbalgalore.com.
“It is only one game and we must have a little patience. That relating to Nasarawa United has passed and we must now think towards Go Round.
“I ask for a little tranquillity and calmness. There is much still to happen and the season has barely begun.
“Football is like this and there is no middle ground. When things are going well it is total euphoria. And when things are not going well, it is the other way.
“We are going to work hard and fight, as we do every year. It is never easy here and you have to give everything and suffer.
“We have taken some criticism but it is not too late for anything.”
