For the third time this season, El-Kanemi coach Ladan Bosso watched as his boys went down three goals to Katsina United at the Muhammadu Dikko Stadium in Katsina on Sunday.

The first time they shipped in three goals was against FC Ifeanyiubah in Nnewi, where the Maiduguri Warriors fought back to score twice before losing 3-2.

The second time they got clobbered 3-0 was on Matchday 18 at the Agege Stadium where MFM FC silenced the free-talking coach and in Katsina, the one-time temporary ground of the Borno Warriors.

In defeat, Bosso insisted that his team's continental ticket target remains intact and promised to work on the lapses that led to the collapse of his side on Sunday.

Admitting but without pointing at what went wrong, Bosso, whose side lie in 5th place on the log with 37 points and eight points adrift of leaders Plateau United, said to "We have noted what went wrong and we would put it right before our next game.

"We have noted what was amiss in the last two games and we are going to work on it as I still have my eyes on continental outing at end of the season."

In the fixture Katsina United, now placed in 13th position, were on the ascendancy all through the encounter with a brace from Musa Suleiman and the third goal from Obinna Eleje. Musa opened scoring on the very first minute and completed his brace three minutes into the second half while Eleje put the match beyond their visitors with a lob in the 74th minute.

El-Kanemi arrived for the match on the heels of their first dropped points at home and were looking to make up for the gap but were wrong-footed by Musa's quickfire opener on 56 seconds from a goalmouth scramble. The home side kept up the pressure in the first half leaving their opponents to few forays that were of little effect.

Chibuzor Okonkwo and Yahuza Bala had half chances for El-Kanemi that they failed to convert. But Katsina United ramped up the pressure when Suleiman doubled the scores early in the second half following a right side cross from Stephen Adah.

El-Kanemi brought in Sunday Anthony, who scored their only goal in the dying minutes of the reverse game in Maiduguri and foreign import Tchoanifine Pade for Mathias Samuel and Suleiman Dori but that did not improve their firepower.

It was game up for El-Kanemi after substitutes Eleje, who replaced the brace scorer, and Tasiu Lawal, who came in for Stephen Adah, combined in the 74th minute with Tasiu laying the pass for Obinna to latch onto and beat the onrushing El-Kanemi keeper, Usman Mohammed.

Chibuzor Okonkwo and Yahuza Bala for the visitors and home boys Eleje and Kape Frank were all booked for misconduct.
