Shooting Stars want to play in the continent next season

The Ibadan side is optimistic they can still qualify to represent Nigeria in the continent next year
With four games to end the 2012 Nigeria Pemier League, Shooting Stars are confident they will still pick a continental ticket.

The Ibadan based club side who are presently in the ninth position on the log with 49 points are training seriously to win all the remaining four matches to stand a chance of qualifying to play in the continent next year.

Club media officer Jubril Arowolo told that the team is perfecting startegies to win all four games.

"We are training hard and doing everything we can so we can garner the points that will give us the ticket.

"It is possible to win all four games and we are going to give it our best shot. Next weekend, we are playing host to current league leaders, Rangers and after that match, we will play another home game against Heartland.

"Our last two games will be in Warri and Ilorin. There are no injury worries in the team and the management is doing all they can to motivate the players for the four games.

"The players have also assured that they want to play in the continent next season. And that is why they have taken their game very serious," Arowolo said.

The Nigeria Premier League will resume next weekend after weeks of inaction due to the Federation Cup.
