The U’s slumped to their fifth defeat in their last six outings, shipping goals at an alarming rate at stadium:mk.

“It’s a big blow. I can’t honestly put my finger on what went wrong. It was just too easy for them today,” admitted Okuonghae.

“I can’t fault the boys’ effort, I just think we let them score at the wrong times, and let them score way too easy, and that’s as a team.

“It wasn’t just mistakes. “We needed to stand up and be stronger,” added Okuonghae.
