Though the Ibadan based side were lucky to share the spoils in the derby, their handler lamented their profligacy in front of goal

Shooting Stars coach, Fatai Amoo has admitted that they were poor in converting begging chances in their 1-1 draw with Mountain of Fire and Miracles FC in Wednesday's Nigeria Professional Football League encounter in Ibadan.

A stoppage-time penalty, converted by Abayomi Adebayo, helped the Oluyole Warriors prevent Fidelis Ilechukwu’s men from securing a valuable away victory.

And Amoo, who refused to be drawn on talks of fatigue, stated that not burying their chances cost them the maximum points. But was quick to praise their improvement from their last game at Kano.

“We cannot really attribute not converting our chances to fatigue entirely, I want to say we were not very precise in finishing, if not, it would have been a victory for our team today,” Amoo said in a post-match interview.

“With what we saw today, it means you can give out your best and win, and that’s the mindset we should have now.

“Ordinarily, if we had stood our ground till the last minute [against Kano Pillars], maybe we would also have picked a point, but then that’s a game we have to win because we have dropped two valuable points at home and we have towards getting them back on the road.”
