Abubakar Bukola Saraki (ABS) FC of Ilorin’s midfielder, Muiz Adeoti, has said he is delighted to start playing again after his injury nightmare.

Adeoti upon returning from a 7-month injury lay off played the entire 90 minutes in a goalless draw with Rivers United in Ilorin last Sunday.

The match day 29 Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) encounter was the first competitive match for the midfield maestro who had successful surgery on his toe in a private hospital in Lagos in March.

The midfielder in a chat with sports journalists, said, “I am very delighted playing again, this is what I love doing and I’m happy to be back.

“My focus now is to help my team to beat the drop, it is unfortunate the position we are right now.

“The period I was injured wasn’t friendly at all but I’m aware it’s part of the game, how you respond to such situation is what is important.

“I hope I can continue to stay injury free for the rest of the season and beyond because I’m enjoying myself again” Adeoti said.

The Coach of the team, Henry Makinwa, praised Adeoti’s performance against Rivers United and was a happy man to see the midfielder back playing again.

According to Makiñwa, a coach will always want all of his best legs fit at all times but when any of them is injured and back, it comes as a relief.

“Injury is part of the game, you always want your players fit all the time because you want to win all the games.

“We are happy to see Muiz back and he has started his comeback with a beautiful performance against Rivers United.

“I hope he can continue to improve upon Sunday’s performance” Makinwa said.

Meanwhile, the trio of Mohammed Mohammed, Martin Ossy and goalkeeper Abdullahi Boje are ruled out of match day 30 clash with Wikki Tourists of Bauchi.

The duo of Mohammed Mohammad and Martin Ossy are down with illness after the match day 29 game with Rivers United while Boje is still struggling with his knee problems.

The likes of Suleiman Dogo, Lukman Hameed and Orji Ejike have all been called to replace Mohammed, Ossy and Boje for the trip to Bauchi.
