Despite losing their last two matches, Wikki Tourists have not given up on winning the Nigeria league according to midfielder Charles Henlon.

Wikki lost to Enyimba 2-1 in a rescheduled game in midweek, before they lost by the same scoreline to Nasarawa United at the weekend.

They are fourth on the table with 51 points, five points behind new leaders Rivers United.

"All hopes are not lost as we still have three matches to go, hopefully we can get positive results from these matches. Personally, the league is still open to five clubs," maintained Henlon, who is on loan from Giwa FC.‎

"We didn't deserve to lose any of the two games, at least a point against Enyimba and in the match against Nasarawa United, we ought to have picked up the three points as at 82 minutes, we are still leading by lone goal they came from behind and won the match.

“We lost concentration at the tail end of the match."
