MFM FC coach Fidelis Ilechukwu has rated his young strikers Stephen Odey and Sikiru Olatunbosun as the best in the NPFL after they netted the goals that sunk Rangers Friday night.
Olatunbosun scored what will be a top contender for ‘Goal of The Season’ after 31 minutes, before Odey doubled the home team’s advantage on the hour for his sixth goal of the season.
The two young strikers have scored a total of nine goals between them so far this season.
MFM have scored a total of 12 goals.
"There is no doubt, we have the best attack in the league. You can discern that from what my players exhibited (vs Rangers),” remarked Ilechukwu.
"I am very happy we won against the league champion. It was a deservedg victory because we worked very hard for it.”
The home win means MFM, who barely escaped relegation last season, have now cut the lead of the table toppers Plateau United to four points as they have 16 points after eight rounds of matches.
They have won five, drawn one and lost two matches thus far.
