Heartland’s captain Ikechukwu Ezenwa says his team was unlucky not to pick all three points against visiting Katsina United last Sunday.
The Naze Millionaires were hoping to make back to back win in the matchday 16 against the Changi boys after their commendable win over Champions Enyimba in the previous game.
However, Katsina United came with a well-executed game plan and secured a valuable away point at the end of the game.
Ezenwa who has kept clean sheets in his last three league games for Heartland was disappointed that they couldn’t break down his former side.
“It’s a painful one,” Ezenwa said.
“Why I call it a painful one is because it is the team I left before joining Heartland. Though we did our best and we will take it as one of those things in football.
“At least we went out last Wednesday to beat Enyimba in Aba, coming home to draw is not the result we wanted but we just have to accept it in the spirit of sportsmanship,” said Ezenwa
Ezenwa has kept clean sheets in his last three matches and will be hoping that his personal run continues when Heartland visit Akwa United in Uyo next weekend.
