John Noble has picked Wednesday 2-1 win against Nasarawa United as his best since joining Enyimba.
The goalkeeper signed for Enyimba from Cameroonian side Pantel Sportive in the off season and has gradually established himself in Fatai Osho’s league-leading side, having started the last five matches.
He contributed majorly to the People’s Elephant’s win in Lafia with his impressive anticipation and good command of aerial balls that thwarted more than a few of the opponents’ attacks.
As a result, the goalkeeper was adjudged the game’s most valuable player, and speaking on the backdrop of it, Noble explained that he had to play through a knock at some point in the game.
“My best game in Enyimba. We came out and fought for ourselves. It was something like war for us. It was just like war, even to me from the beginning of the game to the end of the game there was no rest. Even with injury and all that I had to try my best to make sure we gave the team what they wanted.
“All the boys were determined for victory. Knowing too well that we were one man down we fought very well. Like everybody was all out. Even everything that happened we came out and did everything possible to make sure that we maintained the victory.
“We are getting to the level that I expect. Even the fans, I believe everybody will be happy with us for the result. Two away wins, especially (against) a team like Nasarawa United who were up there on top of the league and we’re in Lafia beating them in their home ground. It’s something very good and we’re really making progress.”
