NNL: NPFL Ticket Is Our Target – Shooting Stars Coach
By Sampson Adedeji
The head coach of Nigeria National League side Shooting Stars Edith Agoye has clarified the objective of the team going into the new season, BSNSports.com.ng reports.
Organiser of the league on Friday released the group and fixture of the league and the date of kick off was fixed for 30th of January, 2021.
The Oluyole Warriors were placed in group B1 alongside Go Round FC, Rovers FC, Vandrezzer FC, Delta Force,Nilayo FC, Nnewi United, Stores, Giant Brillars, Dynamite fc, Ekiti United and Akajobi fc.
Agoye in an exclusive interview with BSNsports said if they do what is required of the team then they will achieve their target.
” I think NNL is a difficult league to play and for the fact that Shooting Stars has been in the league now shows that its not easy to gain promotion to the NPFL.
“We were unlucky in the last time and this time around is a different thing entirely but like always every team in the league is a potential champion, no game is won until you play and no championship is won until you are the best in your group.
“We are going into the season with the hope of doing very well and gaining promotion to the NPFL but we don’t do that by talking, we do that by doing the work that is require to gain promotion,” he said.
Shooting Stars will open the season against Rovers FC at home in the match day one. The firmer CAF Cup winners will play all their home games at the Dipo Dina Stadium, Ogun state.
