Dolphins’ midfielder, Azeez Shobowale has said he is disappointed that his side will not defend the title they won last season.
The domestic champions have slipped to an ignoble ninth position on 51 points after Matchday 36 game home loss to title-chasing Lobi Stars.
Shobowale was emphatic that he moved to the Garden City side with the sole aim of winning titles.
“I came here because of trophies, I feel disappointed ending the season without a trophy.
“Well, it’s one of those things that happen in football, you can’t win all the times the same as you can’t be champions all the time too.
“We’ve conceded the title to someone else, it won’t be ours this time. At least, let somebody else win the title.
“We’re still part and parcel of Dolphins, we can’t reject the team, we started the race together and we’ll finish it together.
“We’ll fight in the remaining two matches at Niger Tornadoes and against Rising Stars and see how many points we’ll pick from the games.
“We may not finish among the best four the way things stand but we must fight for at least sixth finish.
“That will be a bit decent and respectable,” he told SuperSport.com.
The former ABS playmaker said he is staying with the team in the next season.
“I’ll still play for them next season except if I’m told to go. I’m happy at the team,” he said.
