Adedipe was one of United’s key actors on Wednesday when they ended Enyimba’s 11-match unbeaten run with a 1-0 win over the People’s Elephant at the Yakubu Gowon Stadium in a Match Day 18 encounter.

Adedipe spoke to NPFL website after the game against Enyimba in which he expressed happiness over his side’s victory.

“First of all I want to give all the glory to God almighty. It’s not an easy game. We know Enyimba are not a small side but we worked hard and the hard work paid.

“We know we will not have much time to train so we know we just have to keep ourselves and keep the shape we are. Playing last weekend, playing today and playing by the weekend.

“So, there is not much space for us to train and we will just have to keep ourselves and keep the shape we are to Ilorin,” said Adedipe
