Kada City have blamed their struggles in the abridged Nigeria Professional Football League on players’ fatigue.
In a chat with the Media Officers of the club, Mr Jide Bodunde, the players have had little time to prepare for the league after concluding their participation in the NNL Super 8 in Aba.
“No doubt we’re struggling, but I can assure you that we’ll bounce back. Our first four away matches have not helped matters.
“Travelling 15-16 hours on our roads for away matches and playing at home sometimes less than 48 hours is demanding. Don’t also forget that there was little or no time to prepare the team after the NNL Super 8 in Aba,” he said.
Speaking ahead of the Match Day 8 game against Kano Pillars today, Bodunde is optimistic of turning the ugly tide and get back on track.
“Kano Pillars is a strong force to reckon with no doubt, but they’re also not where the coaches wanted them to be.
“Kada City will play to win. We didn’t travel with about six of our regular players to Uyo because of fatigue and the proximity between the Pillars game. They will be an addition to the team when the coaches set out their game plan,” he said.
He however lamented that the 4-0 loss to Akwa United was a sad one but the players have quickly put that behind them while expressing his hope to escape relegation and possibly push for the playoffs.
The Kaduna based club are 11th on the Group B table with seven points from seven games played so far.
