Central defender Maurice Chigozie admitted that his Gombe United side paid for their mistakes as they lost 0-1 to Elkanemi Warriors in the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) week 12.
First half substitute Isiaka Olawale gave the Desert Warriors the three points at the Pantami Stadium, and the defender conceded that his side were at fault.
“It was a game we could have won,” he told Footballlive.ng. “But we made mistakes in both boxes.
“Both goals were very avoidable. We struggled to get behind them – they didn’t leave any spaces at the back.
“But when we did have a chance, we didn’t take it.
“I thought this was a game we should have won, or at least drawn. But mistakes cost us.”
