Enyimba head coach, Finidi George has reacted to the team’s away win against Nasarawa United, reports Prompt News.
The People’s Elephant defeated their hosts 2-1 in their first game of the season at the New Jos Stadium on Saturday.
Elijah Akanni and Imo Obot scored the goals for the eight- time champions.
Oche Josiah was on target for Nasarawa United in the thrilling contest.
“Being the first game a lot of players were a little bit nervous because nobody want to lose,” Finidi stated.
“We knew what happened in the Akwa United game, they were a lot bit mindful but I must commend the boys.
“Nothing was wrong with us in the second half, if we have lost we would have answered such a question.
“Coming to play here, sometimes you have to scrap for it, we are expecting good football but sometimes it may not be possible.
“We did well in the first 45 minutes but because of that two-goal lead our boy stepped back and the pressure came, we have to work on that in the subsequent games.”
