The second half was goalless as both teams made frantic attempts to increase scores in vain.
At the end of the encounter, TKC Coach, Dieudonne Nke spoke to lions4life.com. “This is the start of the second leg of the championship and we can only be satisfied, snatching three points is important though players lacked lucidity in the second half. They tried to play at the rhythm of the opponents”.
