Warri Wolves went into Monday game on the back of a home loss to Rangers International last Wednesday and Jumbo thinks the win over Nasarawa would help to cushion the effect of that.

“We are all happy with the win (especially) after last defeat to Rangers. The win kind of help us to erase the disappointment of Wednesday and we must have the same belief going to Umuahia next weekend,” said Jumbo.

Playing from the right full back position, Jumbo who is just into his second season in the NPFL played for 86 minutes before he was replaced by former MFM star Joshua Abah.

Monday’s win propelled Warri Wolves to 14th on the log with twenty points from 16 matches.

Cletus Emotan’s 14th minute goal for United was cancelled out six minutes from time by Mujaheed Ibrahim for Jigawa Stars.
