There is more to football than it being tagged a derby, surprisingly against all anticipations; the excitement about the game is that it is the first in Lagos since the Nigeria Professional Premier league in 2003, Moreover the two clubs are debutants, this we remember more than what happened on the field of play at Onikan.
Another highpoint of the derby was the presence of who is who in Nigeria football, if Amaju Pinnick presence is counted, you can name the rest.
The game finished 0-0. But it was historical to witness Monsuru Bashiru see red as the first from both debutants in the season, at least there is a first.
In making case for the stalement, Edema said he satisfied with the game and the score line didn’t put him under pressure.
At least for Edema, 5 points behind their city rival ; M.F.M doesn’t matter.
Some observers have thought Ikorodu United should have forced a winner from the encounter, against a 10 man M.F.M in the second half rather than settle for a status quo. (Olukoya boys hasn’t lost in Onikan in recent time)
If both coaches secretly did have any regret, it is the fact that their boys didn’t deliver the goals.
