Shooting Stars finally ended their six-match losing streak in the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) on Wednesday as they piped second-placed Abia Warriors 2-0 in their Match Day 18 tie at the Lekan Stadium in Ibadan.
Second half goals from Kabir Umar and Muyiwa Lawal gave the Oluyole Warriors some respite even though they remain 3rd from the bottom after recording only their sixth win of the season.
The build up to the 3SC vs Abia Warriors clash was overshadowed with the resignation of Technical Head, Kadiri Ikhana and then calls by fans for the sacking of the General manager, Rasheed Balogun.
With the first half of the midweek clash ending in a stalemate, fans were already getting agitated that it could yet be another bad day at the office for their darling team.
However, Umar broke the deadlock five minutes into the second half before Lawal netted the ‘insurance’ goal in the 56th minute.
With the win, Shooting Stars now have 20 points from 18 games while Abia Warriors are third on the log with 30 points from 17 games.
