Nigerian Premier League goalkeeper of the week, Lobi Stars Danladi Isah has heaped praises on God, teammates and Vice Chairman, Dominic Iofa as the strength behind his superb display last weekend against Crown FC of Ogbomosho which they won 0-1 away.
In a chat with Inside Out Premier League at the team’s hotel after the match, Isah said the three points is like gold to him and his teammate.
“First of all, I will say thanks be to Almighty God and my colleagues. I cannot say I was the one that stopped all the shots on the pitch by myself alone. My teammates helped in making the game a success. The three points for today is like gold because I did everything for my team to get it with pains.
“I give God the glory as I was not part of the team from the start of the season. I only joined during the mid-season break, and now squeezing the first away victory for the team is a plus for me and the entire team,” Isah said
On what is going on well for the team, he said, “we have a good Chairman, in the person of Dominic Iofa. His cooperation, understanding of players is second to none. He is behind everything in the team. He has been doing well for us, on and off the pitch. I just want to say thank you to him. For the technical crew, they have done so well for us as players. The training is very good for us, it is showing in our games and performance.”

Our target is to get a continental slot – Wolves
By KATE OBODO
Having defeated Sunshine Stars of Akure 2-0 at the Warri Township stadium last Sunday, assistant coach of Warri Wolves Mike Ogborodi said the team is on course to grab the continental slot.
With more wins for the team, he said focus is now on how to finish among the first three and grab the continental slot, which he is sure they will get.
“The match against Sunshine Stars at Warri Stadium was indeed a good match in which my team did very well. Winning 2-0 at home was a plus for us. It was a great result because of our aim of getting the continental ticket. Though we also target to win the title but with points got by Dolphin and Sunshine, winning the league might be tough. We are doing our best but it is going to be difficult, I think the focus now is to finish among the first three,” he said.
Against Zamfara United at the Gusau Stadium on Sunday, Ogborodi is confident the team will win. He said: “It is going to be a tough game but if the officiating is good, we will definitely win.”
