The Technical Crew of Shooting Stars Football Club
On many occasions, Shooting Stars defence quartet of Waheed Omololu, Abbey Benson, Shittu Taiwo and Mutiu Ogundimu were on their toes to absorb antics of their opponents.
At about 79 minutes, Coach Edith Agoye had to bring in Samuelson Ngongo in the defence to replace also effective Opeyemi Olufemi upfront for our only change in the match.
The substitution strengthened the defence and allowed ageless Moses James and Fatai Gbadamosi to effectively take firm control of the midfield.
With the victory, Shooting Stars have garnered four points from two matches behind Warri Wolves’ six points from three games.
In reaction during the post match interview, Coach Edith Agoye described the victory as very significant.
“The game is not about three but eight points! If Warri Wolves had won, we would still have been on one point, leading us with eight points. It will be extremely difficult for us to catch up. This win is very significant and we are happy”, he sums it up.
"With this crucial win the General Manager of the Club 'Mr Rasheed Balogun has also promised the players Double of their match bonus to each players for a well job done, and he has also heap praises on the technical crew that they have done a decent job on the players and the end of the season we will be back to Nigeria Professional Football League enthused' Mr Rasheed Balogun
