0

THE SELECTION:

Coach Olayiwola reverted back to a back three defensive setup with Skipper Lekan Ajeyomi, Bobola Ojo and Seun Ojo manning the back line.

Onome Adepoju and Omolade Ibitayo at both wingback positions. Academy graduate, Femi Olofinjana who was an unused sub in the win against the Pacemakers got his full debut as he started at the base of the midfield.

He was joined by Dotun Olafisoye in central midfield.

The forward trio of Amaechi Sunday, Chinedu Okorie and Mighty Aderibigbe kept their place upfront after putting on an impressive display in the last match.

NO BREAKTHROUGH

The Lions started the encounter on the front foot by dictating play in the early stages.

However, they could not find a way past the goalkeeper in goal with Dotun and Chinedu going close to getting the opener before the opponents gradually worked their way back into the game but both sides were unable to get the opener in the first 45 minutes.

AMAECHIā€™S WINNER

We took the lead almost immediately after the restart in the 48th minute after Mighty Aderibigbe had gone on a short brilliant solo run and nutmegged his way past a defender before sending in a cross which was spilled by the goalkeeper with Amaechi Sunday blasting home off the rebound.

As a result of the goal, the Lions gained confidence and started dictating play.

However, all attempts to add to the tally were thwarted by the opponent, ensuring the game ended with the Lions scoring the only goal.

WHAT NEXT:

In the second match of the preseason tournament, the Lions will face Agbana FA tomorrow morning at 8:00am.
