Warri (Delta) – Warri Wolves Football Club on Wednesday beat visiting Shooting Stars FC of Ibadan 4-0 at the Warri Township Stadium in a week 27 fixture of the 2014/2015 Glo Premier League.
Shooting Stars dominated the game in the first half and also created a lot of unconverted chances.
But they paid for their inability when substitute Michael Egbeta opened scoring for the home team in the 48th minute through a free-kick
from outside the penalty area.
Shortly after the opener, another substitute, Alimi Sikiru, increased the tally in the 52nd minute through a header.
They scored the third goal through Ebong Kufre in the 59th minute, while Egbeta provided the fourth one in the 83rd minute.
During the post-match interview, Shooting Stars’ coach Gbenga Ogunbote said his boys played fantastic football in spite of a moment
of loss in concentration which caused them the game.
“The game has been won and lost. We had too many careless moments, through elementary errors.
“Irrespective of what happened, we gave a good fight, and the result was not actually the true reflection of the game. But, sometimes, it is like that.
“We were wasteful in the game in the first half, and in the second half we had so many careless moments,’’ he said.
On his part, the coach of Warri Wolves, Paul Aigbogun, admitted that the visitors played better in the first half.
“It was a good game. At some points in the first half, they played better than us, but getting an early goal in the second half boosted our confidence.
“The injuries incurred by some of our players in the first half actually affected our performance, but we came out stronger in the second half,’’ he said.
Egbeta who was voted Man of the Match thanked the fans and urged them to keep supporting Warri Wolves.(NAN)
