Enyimba head coach, Finidi George admitted that lack of attention to details cost his side in the 1-0 defeat to Akwa United.
Uche Collins’ second half header proved decisive as Akwa United sent the People’s Elephant back to Aba empty handed.
Enyimba are now winless in their last three games, drawing two and losing one.
Finidi stated that the game was balanced but his players’ failure to stay focused cost them the game.
“It was a fairly balanced game but at the end of the day we didn’t pay attention to those little details and we suffer the consequences,” he said at a post match conference
“I think my boys did well, maybe we didn’t push hard enough, especially in the first half.”
Enyimba occupy fifth position on the Group A table with 18 points from 12 games.
