Abdullahi Adamu, WIkki Tourists fc.

By us getting this result and with what we had against Rangers I’m confident that we will bounce back and by the end of the first round we should be able to stabilize the team.

The performance of the boys was good especially the second half when we got our goal,because the first half was not our plan but the bench studied the situation and changed things when they came in, it was however generally a good game,Abdullahi declared.
