Wikki Tourist coach Mangut Mbwas has commended Shooting Stars Sports Club (3SC) for converting their chances to win 2-0 in a matchday 27 fixture of the Nigeria Professional Football League.
The Ibadan club beat Wikki at the Adamasingba stadium, scoring their two goals through Ibrahim Ajani and Bode Daniel in the 28th and 43rd minutes of the game respectively to move from 19th to 18th spot with 32 points.
Mbwas said the match’s officiating and goals scored in the game were excellent, saying his team would have to step up their game in subsequent matches.
He said they would now be needing maximum points from their matches to be comfortable with their position on the table.
-The officiating and goals scored were excellent. It was not what we expected truly. We just could not have the game. I give it all to 3SC, the coach said.
He said his team’s quest to win a ticket to play on the continental was not too away from being achieved, as they would be needing about five to six points.
-These are just from two games, and we will improve and cover up to meet up with the target.
-We have about 11more games to play and the position is just about one or two more games to meet up.
-I believe it is not impossible for us if we work harder, Mbwas said.
