‘3SC NPFL stay bright’

Shooting Stars Sports Club (3SC) head coach, Fatai Amoo has said the win against Nasarawa United is a sure sign that the side will avoid relegation in the on-going top-flight.

The Oluyole Warriors defeated the Solid Miners 2-0 in Sunday’s Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) matchday 35 clash at the Lekan Salami Stadim in Ibadan.

Amoo said what is left for his side to do is to go all out to secure some points in their two away matches at El Kanemi Warriors and Niger Tornadoes while they claim the whole points on home ground against Akwa United.

“The impact of our victory against Nasarawa United is that it has brought great hope of survival to our camp once again.

“If we had lost or drawn the match the hope would have diminished greatly but now the hope is alive that we will beat the drop at the end of the day.

“Looking at where we are at the moment there is still a lot to play for in the remaining matches on the calendar.

“We cannot say we have been impressive on the road, our poor form on the road is the explanation to where we are right now.

“We have three matches more to determine our fate so we must take it upon ourselves to do the needful in order to bring our dream to reality.

“Against Nasarawa United we were not clinical in the first half but we came into the second half more daring and we were able to get the winning goals.

“What is there for us is to be more daring especially in the remaining two matches on the road at El Kanemi Warriors and Niger Tornadoes to ensure we some points in the matches.

“Of course, we must avoid any form of gambling with the remaining home match against Akwa United once we achieve the set target then our position in the top-flight will be guaranteed.

“For now nothing has been won completely, the battle is still on and we must fight till our goal is achieved,” said the former Sunshine Stars coach to supersport.com.

The Ibadan landlords are 17th on the 20-team top-flight on 46 points 16 behind league leaders, Plateau United.
