NPFL: Sunshine Stars boss, Agoye satisfied with draw against Rangers

Sunshine Stars head coach, Edith Agoye has praised his players for their impressive performance in Sunday’s 1-1 away draw against Rangers.

The Owena Whales preserved their unbeaten streak after another stalemate at the Awka City Stadium.

Agoye’s side went behind in the opening 15 minutes when Ikemdinachi Imo put the ball into his own net.

Ibrahim Yusuf, however, equalised for the Akure club in 35 minutes.

Mustapha Lawal stopped Christian Nnaji’s late penalty to ensure Sunshine Stars returned to their base with a share of the spoils.

“It was a very good game, despite the fact that they (Rangers) had their back to the wall they played a very good game,” Agoye was quoted by the club’s media.

“They are coached by one of the best coaches in Nigeria and I want the Enugu Government to keep faith with the team, believe me, with time they will get it right.”

Sunshine Stars will host Abia Warriors in their next league game at the Akure Sports Complex on Sunday.
