Speaking after the match, Agoye thanked his players for their commitment and dedication just as he said they deserve the win.
He said “Going down 1-0 at home, especially in the second half against a very strong team, Kwara Utd, actually, it was not a good one as we felt the end had come but because of the players, they showed character in memory of our late General Manager.
“The players gave everything on the field of play to make sure the three points arrived at home and we are very grateful for that,” he said.
Also, Kwara United boss, Coach Abdulahi Biffo said “It is hard to believe.
“We came here to get the three points but at the end of the 90th minute we were unable to get anything.
“I praise 3SC players, even when they were 1-0 down, you could see the zeal from them.
“I will blame myself and the players because we lost concentration towards the end where it mattered most, we lost it.”
