“It’s really painful. “Every mistake on our part was punished and it was very good on their part,” Osho told

“As for the game, we did well, but we had to be a little tidy in the back.”

Enyimba will try to bring down the deficit when it hosts Al Merreikh in a January 5 turnaround at Enyimba International Stadium.
