NPFL: Saka’s strike gives Sunshine Stars victory

Midfielder Ayo Saka on Sunday scored to give hosts Sunshine Stars FC the maximum three points in a Match Day 10 fixture of the 2016/2017 Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL).

In the match played at the Ondo State Sports Complex in Akure, Saka scored with a 25-yard shot in the 38th minute to give them a 1-0 win over Rivers United.

Kayode Olujohungbe, Technical Adviser of Sunshine Stars, later told newsmen after the encounter he was happy with the way his team played.

Olujohungbe noted that his team played better against ABS FC of Ilorin, but was unlucky not to win the game.

He said the team would now take it one match at a time and would hope to improve on the unbeaten run of form in the league against El-Kanemi Warriors of Maiduguri.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Sunshine Stars now have 12 points from 10 matches.(NAN)
