Kwara United have won three of their last five Nigeria Professional Football League games to shift up to 15th on the log.
Coach Abubakar Bala has been thrilled with the ability of his players to come good despite being beaten and battered in the early stages of the campaign.
“There was a good momentum about us before the league went on break,” Abubakar Bala declared when speaking to Footballlive.ng.
“We’ve been progressing all the way through. Last week I spoke about a growing maturity about the group of players and I think we’re progressing well.
“Our confidence has been good in the tune up games, but you’ve got to get yourself ready as quickly as possible to reach the level the Nigeria Professional Football League is at.
“The players are doing that and doing that very well at this moment in time. We know we’re in the hardest, toughest and most desirable league to be in.
“We worked very hard to get here and we’ll continue to keep working hard. We have a forward momentum about ourselves.”
