“We are actually climbing perhaps slowly like frog but steadily heading to our desired destination.
“I believe we will continue to further improve our ratings as the league progresses.
“We just finish a very difficult game against Dolphins, a tough game that could have gone either way.
“Dolphins held us to a standstill, we were lucky to have scored the winning goal off a rebound.
“I’m shocked that a side like Dolphins would be struggling with the quality of the bench and players in its fold.
“I must confess that we were the luckiest side as the outcome could have been anybody’s,” said the former Akwa United coach to supersport.com.
