MFM of Lagos coach Tony Bolus said the tournament provided him an opportunity to gain access to his team after losing some key players during the transfer window.
According to him, his team is still running and with four points from two games he has been able to identify some gaps in the team that the technical team would work on.
“It’s a work in progress for us,” said the coach.
“We have been working with the boys immediately after the lockdown and we needed to go to a reputable place like this to test ourselves.
“The guys were decent against Bayelsa United, it’s a gradual process. Before the end of the preseason they should be where we expect them to be. “
For Lobi Stars coach Kabiru Dogo, the championships allowed him to test various players in different formations against some solid teams like Akwa United and the rest.
Lobi Stars forced the former AITEO Cup winner to draw 1-1 on Sunday after defeating host Rivers United 1-0 on the opening day of the preseason.
