Fidelis Ilechukwu has said he is proud of his players’ performance against Enyimba but believes MFM FC deserved to win.
The Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) week 13 encounter finished in a 1-1 draw and while Enrique was pleased with the point gained from a play off challenger, he feels it wouldn’t have been underserved for MFM to take all three.
“Had we won today (Sunday) I don’t think anyone would have been surprised,” Ilechukwu told Footballlive.ng.
“But the game doesn’t reward merit, only effectiveness.
“We deserved to win and drew. We’ve been better than Enyimba, who are in second place and in great form.
“Anything that puts distance between the teams behind us, even temporarily, is welcome.
“There are several things that will strengthen us because the hardest thing against teams at this level is to create chances, and we did that.
