Ekiti State sports commissioner, Hon. Michael Awopetu has expressed confident Ekiti United will come good after beating hard fighting Abeokuta Stormers 1-0 on match day 2 of the Nigeria National League at the Oluyemi Kayode Stadium, Ado-Ekiti last Sunday.

Awopetu while reacting to Ekiti United narrow win moments after the final whistle reckoned that the boys needed some time to play and blend together.

“Good the team won even though we are still suspect in some of our playing patterns. “I believe the coaches will work to improve the team in subsequent games,” said Hon. Awopetu.
