Dolphins coach Stanley Eguma has vowed to make up for his side’s 2-1 loss to Kaduna United with today’s mid-week duel against coach Kadiri Ikhana’s Kwara  United at the Liberation Stadium, Port Harcourt.

Eguma, who described Kwara as a tough side, told SuperSport.com on telephone that they have forgotten the week seven defeat and are poised to pick the three  points at stake.

“Well, losing to Kaduna United was a big blow and set back, we will work hard to pick three points off Kwara.

“Kwara is a good side and have got good away results but we will do our best. It will be difficult but the three points must be ours.”

Eguma, whose wards had a brief stint at the top of the league, explained in detail the circumstances that led to their defeat in Kaduna in week seven tie.

“We had some crises before the match, players complained of non-payment of their emoluments which resulted in the strike by Dolphins and Sharks and it  affected us badly.

“We did not have adequate preparations coupled with the fact that we arrived in Kaduna very late, which was part of the problems, too.

“The referee was also not kind to us, but I don’t want to go into that. I think we did not prepare very well for the game due to the crises at hand,” he  said.
