The 2009/2010 Premier League season though still young has so far proven to be a very tough one for Shooting Stars Sports Club of Ibadan. The Oluyole Warriors with a new management emerged from the lower division last season and were confident that they will take their pride of place in the elite division. With that huge expectation, they made some changes in the team and thought they were prepared for hostilities in the Premier League, but the surprise came early.
So far, they have played four matches with four points to show for their effort.Â Shootingâ€™s General Manager, Mutiu Adepojumust by now be frantically looking for solutions to the teamâ€™s inability to ascertain itself in the league. The Ibadan side only on Wednesday lost to Kano Pillars 0-1 during a midweek game and it looks as if the losing streak will continue tomorrow when they take on Sunshine Stars FC in Akure.
For Sunshine Stars, they have vowed to secure the maximum points and improve their standing on the league. One of the chieftains of the club, Mike Idoko told Insideout The Glo Premier League that they are leaving nothing to chance in their bid to capture the league title this season and that Shooting will not stop their ambition.
â€œWe have our eyes focused on the league title and this year, we will not allow anything to stop us from achieving this set objective. We are not underrating any team and we ask that no team should underrate us. We are motivated and determined to achieve results.
Shooting Stars are a good side but we are going to prove that we are better tomorrow when we meet. We will be going full throttle against the Ibadan side and we expect the maximum points by the end of 90 minutesâ€, Idoko said.
