Adepoju told Goal.com that the only way to sustain the impressive performance of the team in the second round of the Nigeria Premier League last season is not to tamper with the playing staff.
"We need to sustain the tempo with which we played in the second round of the Premier League last season. And the only way to do it is to retain the bulk of the players.
"That is why we are just going to recruit only six players so that there will be no disruption in the rhythm of the players when another season begins.
"Everybody will agree that we have a good team. And with just six quality players, you can be sure that the team will be strengthened for the coming season.
"And when we sign just six players, Shooting Stars will challenge for the League title from the first day of the season.

Shooting Stars finished in the 14th position last season on 49 points.
