Akwa United coach Kennedy Boboye insists that his side should have taken all the three points at stake after playing out a goalless draw with FC Ifeanyi Ubah in one of matchday 18 of Nigeria professional football league season.

Akwa United goalkeeper Jean Efala was named the man of the match for his great saves to deny hair splitting attempts at goal by the likes of Eze Ifeanyi, Samuel Kalu and Uche Sebastine up front for IfeanyiUbah.


However Boboye insist his side’s performance was all round and not just down to the super form of the goalkeeper and deserved to walk away with the three points.


“Actually I am not happy with the result because this is not what we came for. We came for the whole points but sometimes you push more and you get less, so we make do with the draw.


“They are lucky because we missed some chances that would have made the difference,” Boboye said.


Following the draw Akwa United are places sixth on the log with 27 points from 18 matches.
