The Wolves were just over a minute away from getting their first win of the 2019/2020 NPFL season but for a late equaliser by their host.

Moses Omoduemuke had given the visitors the lead when he bent a free-kick over the wall and into the back of the net on 59 minutes but Kabir Adeniji denied them all three points when he poked home three minutes into additional time.

The mood of the Wolves at the end of the game was a sad one but their coach, Evans Ogenyi, had a positive expression after seeing some positives in his team's play.

"Definitely! This is a match I thought we already won," the coach answered when asked if he felt it was two points dropped by his team.

"But in every match, you pick something from it. It has shown that one or two of my players lose concentration when it matters most, so we'd work on it cause our next game is against a top side, we'd do some corrections and see how it goes.

"I came here with a game plan to try and carry the day but it was unfortunate that my defender who was first to the ball messed up and it resulted in the equalizer.

"But I still praise my boys because in the league no team is a pushover. 1-1 isn't a bad result and this is a marathon league, you take each match as it comes.

The Delta state-based side's next game is against Stanley Eguma's Rivers United at the Warri Township stadium and Ogenyi says he is already planning for that game.

"There are some positives I've taken from this match which I'm going to build on and bearing in mind that Rivers United is not a small team. I have a game plan against them but it's not something I'll talk about here because my secret can be taken and worked upon," he added.

The manager who replaced Ngozi Ezeji at the club in September further revealed that his main aim for the season is to help the team maintain its status as a top-flight side.
