Plateau United defender Salomon Junior has admitted his club were lucky to win a league opener against Niger Tornadoes 2-1 at home over the weekend.
Ibeh Johnson grabbed a dying minute winner after Charles Okafor’s 17th
minute opening goal was cancelled by Tornadoes Kunle Issa midway through the second half.
Benin Republic international Salomon said it was a tough game, but they kept believing something good will happen before the game ended.
"It was a very difficult match for us. We scored the winner towards the end of the game and I can say luck was on our side," Junior opened up.
He said they learnt some lessons from the game.
"We need to concentrate from the blast of the whistle right up to the end of the match,” said the experienced defender.
“We must also try as much as we can to utilise our chances in front of goal."
