The gaffer is delighted after making a winning start in charge of the Chanji Boys during a test-match win against Jangorzo FC in Niger Republic

Chinedu Udechukwu is delighted that his goals helped Katsina United defeat Rivers United in a rescheduled Nigerian topflight encounter.

The striker struck in both halves to grant the Chanji Boys a 2-0 win over Pride of Rivers. And the result saw the Baldwin Bazuaye-led side zoom to the tenth position on the log with 25 points from a possible 57.

"As a team, we just tried to push ourselves. It was good to win by a good margin against Rivers United and it's a great feeling, especially as a striker, to score two goals," Udechukwu told Goal. 

"I was extremely happy with my input to the victory. The team did a great job. I hope to continue like this. I was pleasantly delighted by the understanding between myself and my teammates. It's my hope that I get better to help Kastina United achieve a lot in the year 2017."

"The goals should be been more than two. I feel we deserved to win the game. With 25 points in the bag for us we can continue to push up the table in the second round," he concluded.
