Sunshine Stars Football Club of Akure on Saturday defeated visiting Niger Tornadoes FC in a week 30 fixture of the 2015/2016 Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL).
Michael Egbeta put the home team in front in the 45th minute of the first half, while Samad Quadri scored in the 48th minute to secure the win for Sunshine Stars.
After the match, Solomon Ogbeide, Sunshine Stars’ Technical Adviser, said he was happy with the team’s performance.
Ogbeide said the expectation of every coach was for his team to play and win and he was happy his team did just that.
“Football is not basketball where you must convert all the chances you get in order to stay on top. But I am happy my team won at the end of the day.
“Also, I am cautiously optimistic that we will get there with the right motivation,” he said.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Sunshine Stars will next take on Ikorodu United FC of Lagos, in a week 31 fixture of the NPFL.
