Rivers United FC Technical Adviser, Stanley Eguma says careless defence cost his team’s 1-0 loss to Kano Pillars, at the Ahmadu Bello Stadium in Kaduna.

Eguma in a voice note posted by Charles Mayuku, Rivers United Media Officer, on Thursday said defeat was part of the game of football.

“It’s not a bad game, we lost that game against the run of play; we conceded that goal out of the carelessness of the defence but it’s part of the game. We have lost today, we have to go back to prepare for other games. We tried our best to see how we could break Pillars defence but lots of missed chances caused us the defeat,” he said.
