Shooting Stars manager Edith Olumide Agoye has demanded that fans of Shooting Stars show patience if they want to see great results come from their team.
The manager told newsmen after a 1-1 draw against defending Champions Akwa United at home inside the Lekan Salami Stadium.
The Oluyole Warriors had to rely on a late goal from substitute Ayo Adejubu who recently joined the side from Sunshine Stars to pick a point against Kennedy Boboye’s men.
“Our transition to the NPFL is not expected to be very quick, definitely it will take a bit of time, by the time we play 4,5, 6 game(s), when we are used to playing in the Npfl again, definitely there is alot that will come out from Shooting Stars.” Agoye said.
The draw was the first time Shooting Stars and Akwa United encounter will end in a draw as their last seven games had seen a winner emerge.
Akwa United boss Kennedy Boboye also cited lack of concentration as the reason his side failed to pick maximum points in Ibadan.
“We lost concentration towards the dying minutes, the ball we lost to Shooting caused the equalizer and it was a bad one because we came here for three points, they did well but mistakes happen and we’ll correct our mistakes when we get home.” The former Plateau United manager said.
Shooting Stars will be facing Lobi Stars in their next game at the Aper Aku Stadium in Markurdi. The Oluyole Warriors are still without a win in their first two games.
Fellow league returnees Remo Stars top the log having won both of their games. Their lastest being a 3-0 crushing of Heartland where Andy Okpe, the league’s topscorer netted twice.
