Many fans of Shooting Stars Sport Club (3SC) of Ibadan were disappointed yesterday, Sunday as visiting Plateau United Football Club forced the team to a 2-2 draw in a Week 14 league match.

According to News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), the 3SC supporters, who were expecting improved performance from the Ibadan based club after the 0-6 molestation by Kano Pillars in a Week 13 league match, left the stadium disappointed.

The home side secured its two goals from Tope Oorelope’s penalty kick and Wasiu Jimoh in the 32nd and 37th minutes respectively, while Joshua Obaje and Ibe Johnson scored for Plateau United FC in the 26th and 73rd minutes.

Coach Zakari Baraje of Plateau United FC told newsmen that it was a very good game between two wonderful sides.

We are in a competition and everyone would want to be the best.

“ I think it is also the hope of any team to at least be among the first eight teams on the table so as to remove the fear of relegation, ” he added.
