NNL: Gateway Utd Edge Past Vandrezzer 1-0

Sunkanmi Odusina's goal ensured that  Gateway United pipped visiting Vandrezzer Football Club 1-0 in a second tier Nigeria National League NNL match played on  Saturday at the MKO Abiola International Stadium in Kuto Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital

A long ball into the visitors box led to a defensive mix up in the Vandrezzer defence, Odusina Sunkanmi finished exquisitely to send the home crowd into frenzy in the early minutes of the encounter .

Gateway United have now picked six points from possible nine, while Vandrezzer remain without a win  after three games in the 2021/2022 Nigeria National League season.

Meanwhile Coach Toyin Ayinla has expressed joy over his side hard fought victory over Vandrezzer

But Ayinla strongly believe that the best is yet to come from his side  

"We thank the Almighty for this result. Quite important for us to have the three points. There are some areas we have gone wrong; we are not going back to the drawing board, we go back to training and make corrections", he stated

"The league is still young, we keep improving, it will be a better performance in our next game. Today's game was tough, the force majeure was the breeze, we were forced to change our pattern 
because the breeze was against us", he added

Up next for the Toyin Ayinla side is an away trip to Ikorodu City on Saturday 5th March, 2022.
