Go Round’s coach, Ngozi Elechi says he was happy with the win over Gateway and correspondingly, the draw promotion rivals, Bayelsa United got at Unicem Rovers.
“We performed very well. We played very well. In the last home match we played here, they did not live up to billing but today it shows they are up for it.
“The rain in the second half did not allow us to push front but over all we are happy we got the three points at stake and are still above Bayelsa United, Elechi said.
Gateway’s Shakitu Lawal said he was happy with the way his side played the game.
“It was a good game, but unfortunately we lost. They did well, according to instructions.
We expected rain ball and decided to train for it,” He said.
