Following their home draw against 3SC, the goalkeeper insists his side's profligacy in front of goal is their greatest undoing this season

Gombe United's Emmanuel Fabiyi has made it clear that failure to convert begging chances is the club's biggest problem this season.

Shooting Stars condemned the Savannah Scorpions to their third draw at home scoring late to pick a 1-1 draw at the Pantami Stadium on Sunday.

And disappointed goalkeeper insists they must work hard to improve their team's display to avoid a disastrous campaign this season.

"I'm not really happy at all. We could not win again at home," Fabiyi told Goal.

"We were so poor and could not get goals at home. We could have won the game but we couldn't score goals.

"We are playing well but I’m disappointed we couldn't score goals. That is our biggest problem.

"The game came so late. The referee gave a free-kick and my teammates were relaxed. The ball came to a Shooting Stars player who was not marked.

"The moments I just turned, the guy already put the ball into the net. There is nothing I could do. It was just a poor goal and the fans were not happy at all.

"We ought to be playing out our lives at home and scoring more goals at home to make up for our poor performance away.

"If we could get more goals and wins at home, we could possibly get some points way which should have put us in a good position.

"If we don't score goal, then we should not allow them to score us. It is important we avoid conceding goals if we find it difficult to score."
