Remo Stars head coach Daniel Ogunmodede has said the Sky Blue Stars reacted well in the 1-0 win against Enyimba on Wednesday.
It was a hard-fought victory for Ogunmodede's men who bounced back from the 3-0 defeat against newly promoted Bendel Insurance at the weekend.
Samuel Anakwe put the host in front after 28 seconds, stabbing home from close range after being set up by Edidiong Ezekiel.
“It was a good reaction from the lads and am so proud of the attitude they displayed in the game, as they responded well,” said the young gaffer who couldn't hide his excitement
“To be honest, the entire team was bittered with itself after losing 3-0 to Bendel Insurance in Benin City.
"We know we didn’t deserve to lose in such a manner.
"Going into the Matchday 5 game, the team needed the catalyst to ignite its good form and we got it against the People's Elephants in less than 30 seconds, which was good for the team."
When quizzed on whether his team's goal ratio per match gives him concern, he said: "For me, I'm satisfied that we got the 3 points, which is the most important thing for me.
"I am also delighted that my team creates a lot of chances.
"These are young lads, they are over-excited, and they want to impress the fans, me, and make up for the loss on Matchday 4.
"We did deserve to score two, three or more goals against Enyimba but the 3 points were key for the team."
The next game for the Ikenne club is a tricky clash against Akwa United at the Goodwill Akpabio International Stadium in Uyo.
