NPFL: Shooting Stars Miss Out On Derby Win
Shooting Stars were minutes away from securing victory in the South West derby on Wednesday in Sagamu against Remo Stars.
The Oluyole Warriors were however denied the crucial win as home team Remo Stars squeezed a last-gasp equaliser in the Match Day 30 Nigeria Professional Football League tie.
Moses James gave 3SC the lead while Ekene Awazie leveled the scores for the Remo side seconds to the final whistle.
Shooting Stars Coach Fatai Amoo was pained to miss out on what could have been his team’s first away win.
“I thought we have grabbed our first away win of the season only for Remo Stars to earn the equaliser in the additional minutes of the game.
“It’s an outright and total loss of concentration on our part, it beats my imagination how we openly missed the golden opportunity, I really lacked the right words to explain what happened.
“The away draw looks exactly like an away loss for me considering the time we conceded the equalising goal.
“This lost opportunity to ink our first away win has taught us a big lesson to play till the last whistle.” Amoo lamented,
