Technical Adviser of Shooting Stars Sports Club (3SC), Gbenga Ogunbote, has described as unfortunate, the goalless draw recorded by his side against the visiting Heartland FC of Owerri.
Thousands of the supporters and fans of the Oluyole Warriors watched as their darling team dominated proceedings throughout the matchday eleven tie, but ended up wasting all the numerous chances that came their way.
In his post match comments, the Oracle described the result as unfortunate, blaming it on the inability of his players to make use of the chances created.
“I think it’s one of the moments in the game, this is a game we deserved to win honestly, but our inability to convert our chances robbed us the victory today, we will take the positives from it and move on” stated Ogunbote.
On the conversion of chances, the gaffer, who hinted that his team did not underrate the visitors, said the team will continue to work on it
“Even if we had scored ten goals today, we will still not stop working on the art of goal scoring, we will go back and do the needful to ensure that we take our chances”.
The 3SC chief tactician said the result had nothing to do with the couple of changes made in the team for the game, stressing that those changes were necessitated by the circumstances on ground.
“Every player was registered to play. Some of our players have knocks, and were not available for selection, so all the ones that played, did their best, but unfortunately, we were unable to convert our chances”.
