Rivers United head coach Stanley Eguma has expressed satisfaction with hi side's victory over Heartland FC on Wednesday but says the final score was in contrast with their level of dominance during the NPFL showdown.

Second half goals from Emeka Ogbugh and Roland Koffi proved decisive as Rivers United bounced back to winning ways – after a winless run in March with a 2-0 win over Heartland at the Yakubu Gowon Stadium in Port Harcourt.

Speaking to the club's official website after the game, Eguma believes more goals should have been scored if his wards had not displayed profligacy in the contest.

"It was a difficult game as Heartland adopted a formation that almost neutralized our tactical plans.

"We made changes (to our tactics after the break) and started getting the goals.

"The number of goals we got today did not reflect our dominance as we got so many scoring chances." said Eguma

The result means Rivers United have now moved to 10th in the NPFL table while Heartland remain in the bottom-four.
