Shooting Stars Sports Club (3SC) of Ibadan are in no mood for anything short of a convincing win as they play host to Niger Tornadoes of Minna on Sunday.
The Oluyole Warriors return to their slaughter slab, the Lekan Salami Stadium for the matchday seven fixture against the IKon Allah boys, fresh from last Wednesday’s disappointing loss to Remo Stars in Ikenne.
Going by the mood of the players, ahead of the match, Niger Tornadoes are surely in the capital city of the pacesetter state at a very wrong time.
“We were all disappointed by the defeat in Ikenne, it wasn’t what we bargained for but in football, it happens like that sometimes
“Now that we are back home, we have no option than to make up for the loss, so as to wipe out that painful memories and Sunday’s game against Tornadoes presents the best chance for us to to do that. That’s exactly what we are going for, not just winning, but winning convincingly”, said skipper Malomo Taofeek.
Tornadoes’ visit to Ibadan have always ended in defeats for the Minna based side, and going by the current form of the Oluyole Warriors on home soil this season, the tide will definitely remain the same, moreso that the Hamza Abara tutored lads have been struggling on the road this season.
The last time both sides met at the same venue was during the 2021/22 season, May 8, 2022 to be precised, with Moses Omoduemuke’s seventh minute goal separating them.
