The Flying Antelopes were coasting to an away draw before a chance to cart away with the maximum points presented itself in the 88th minute. But midfielder Godwin Aguda fluffed his lines from 12-yard out.
The Oluyole Warriors punished Imama Amakapabo’s men after Bode Daniel grabbed the match-winner just before the final whistle. And the striker has likened the event to one with a theatrical undertone.
“It was as if it was a drama because we thought we had won the game as soon as the late spot kick was given but we lost it before they managed to get a goal that secured them the maximum points,” Omoniwari told Goal.
“No matter how bitter we are due to this defeat, we must move on and concentrate on the next game we have at hand in Katsina.
“We are all distraught by the manner in which the defeat came but we must realize that there are other games ahead and if we are too weighed down by this loss it may affect other upcoming ones.”
