NPFL: Remo Stars won’t give up on title chase – Ogunmodede

Remo Stars technical adviser Daniel Ogunmodede said his team is still in the title race despite their loss to Kwara United in Ilorin.

The Sky Blue Star suffered a 3-2 defeat against Kwara United on Sunday.

The visitors conceded three times in the first half before scoring twice late in the game.

Ogunmodede commended his players for their performances and vowed to keep pushing for the title.

“We will not give up. We will keep fighting to the end. We knew it wouldn’t be easy, but we’ll learn from our mistakes and come back stronger,” he said after the game.

“The only disappointment is that we were unable to get the maximum three points. We planned for the win, but unfortunately, we couldn’t get our desired results.

“That is the only disappointment. I understand there is no excuse for failure; if not, I would have been talking about the abrupt break we had for a month, so you expect a team to come back and give it their best—it’s impossible.

“But nevertheless, it was a good fight. Kwara United took advantage of their early goal; you know this is a team who had the luck of playing about two matches during the holidays, which tells of their match fitness, and the early goal gave them a lot of confidence. We were struggling; they took advantage again and scored their second goal before the whistle sounded for the second half.

“We came in the second half and fought hard; we were unlucky and scored an own goal. We wanted to be champions, and we know what it means to be champions—as champions, you don’t give up. So we fought. We got two consolidating goals, but it wasn’t enough.”
