Tanko-Lato rues Wikki Tourists’ defeat

Kaduna United coach, Salleh Tanko-Lato has admitted his side experienced their worst day at Wikki Tourists in the ongoing Glo Premier League season.

The Crocodiles lost 0-2 to struggling side, Wikki Tourists on Matchday 35 in Bauchi on Wednesday.

Tanko-Lato said his side knew the encounter against Wikki Tourists would be tough but never bargained for defeat.

“Today (Wednesday) is one of our off days, we know playing a side in the bottom four of the log at this crucial time would be difficult but we never expected ourselves to be at the losing end.

“We’re disappointed with the result more so as we’re yet to pick point on the road with three games to end the season. It’s not a cheering news at all.

“We’re not yet at the comfort zone on 47 points, we must avoid defeat in the remaining three matches, at least, to take our points haul to 50.

“We don’t want to end the season with the unenviable record of going through a whole season without grabbing a point on the road, so we must fight hard to win on the road as well as home.

“Our next home game is against title-chasing side, Bayelsa United which will pose a hard nut to crack but we must find a way round the game to win, we can’t afford to drop points till the end of the season, at least, not at home.

“I know Kaduna United will survive relegation but we have to put our hands on deck to ensure we steer the side to safety,” said the former Plateau United star to supersport.com.

The defeat at Wikki Tourists leaves Kaduna United's total points at 47.
