LPRC Oilers quest of winning silverware this season in an attempt to reach the grand final of the Liberia Football Association (LFA) knock-out competition got a jolt when they were eliminated in the semi-final by newly promoted First Division team FC Fassell 2-1 on Wednesday at the Antoinette Tubman Stadium.
The defeat showed the Oilers weakness in several departments with the need for adjustments to be made next season in the coaching staff and playing body.
At least nine new signings must take place, with fresh blood, young and competitive players brought on board as a means of rejuvenating the team.
Since 2005, the oil boys have never won a major silverware which is a clear indication that changes need to take place.
the win of Fassell means they will face NPA Anchors in the grand final of the knock-out slated for this Sunday. The Anchors on Wednesday defeated Watanga FC to cruise to the grand final.
The oil boys only hope now this season is the national league where they are on top but will have to win their remaining three matches and at the same time hope that reigning champions Barrack Young Controllers (BYC) lose some of their matches as they have four matches to go.
