NWFL Matchday 14: Sunshine Stars 1-1 Gombe United

By Femi Atolagbe


Sunshine Stars coach Edith Agoye has described his side’s inability to grab the three maximum points against visiting Gombe United as unfortunate. 

Agoye while commending his players for giving everything for the game, urged them to put the result of the game behind them and focus on the next match against Akwa United.

He stated this after his side played 1-1 draw against Gombe United in the match day 14 of the Nigeria Premier Football League NPFL decided at the Ondo State Sports complex Akure yesterday.

The former Shooting Stars coach said it’s painful that his players couldn’t convert many chances created which he said turned back to hurt them in the encounter.

Anieto Uko had scored for Sunshine Stars in the 32 minutes of the game to put the home side ahead.

Before the visitors drew level with them in the 75minutes, Sunshine Stars efforts to restore their lead were not successful as they rued many chances created.

The coach insisted his side played very well in the first half, saying they created a lot of chances which they couldn’t utilize to their advantage.

“It’s a difficult one from this kind of situation where you played very well with many chances created but ended this way”.

“The players introduced in the second half of the game gave good account of themselves, this is a Nigerian league where you can win away and lose at home, we are going to sit tight and prepare very well and go to Eket against Akwa United and fight for the three points at stake”.
