Lobi Stars have singled out the match officials during their 1-2 loss to Warri Wolves last Sunday in a Week 5 tie of the Nigeria Premier League (NPL) at the Warri City Stadium.|
CEO of Lobi Stars, Dominic Iorfa, who also doubles as the club’s technical adviser, expressed satisfaction with the way centre referee, Reverend Father A. Eze, handled the game in Warri.
He was particular about Eze rightfully awarding a spot kick in open play to his side which Victor Barnabas converted on 62 minutes for Lobi Stars’ equaliser.
“I’m happy with the way the referee handled the game. He was really in charge and even awarded a correct penalty to us. I’m probably sure that if it was another referee may be we wouldn’t have been given the penalty. Generally he did well with the officiating and I must commend him,” said Iorfa.
Reverend Father Eze from Enugu State was assisted during the officiating of last Sunday’s game by assistant referees, A. Uzonna from Anambra and Obani Andi from Imo
