Shooting Stars striker, Ajani Ibrahim has hailed their league home win against Sunshine Stars but he has warned his teammates that they cannot continue to ponder over that important three points with another blockbuster against Kano Pillars lurking around on Wednesday.
The Oluyole Warriors are still 19th on the league table with 25 points from 22 games but another victory against Sai Masu Gida could take them off the relegation zone with Gombe United, Sunshine Stars, Enugu Rangers, Wikki Tourists and Rivers United either facing tough opposition at home or heading for away games.
Ibrahim who netted the only goal against the Owena Whales whom he once played for before moving over to Shooting Stars revealed that he and his teammates must remain calm and ensure that they pick another maximum point against Pillars in Ibadan as they continue their steady escape from the drop zone.
“It is always a thing of joy to score goals. I was no doubt happy to score against Sunshine Stars but we need to think beyond them now because we are done with them. We need to start thinking about our mid week opponents, Kano Pillars. They are equally not doing well and will like to hurt us. We cannot afford not to pick maximum points against them,” Ibrahim told Goal.
“Pillars are a tough side not minding their present position on the log. We need to think of positive ways we can use to undo whatever tactics they have come with. It is possible to pick another win and leave the relegation zone for good.”
