Chief coach of Shooting Stars Sports Club (3SC) of Ibadan Edith Agoye, has charged his boys to put behind them the Aiteo Cup round of 16 loss to Smart City of Lagos and shift and focus to the league.
The Oluyole Warriors gallantly fell 4-5 via penalties to the Lagos based side, after both sides battled to a goalless draw at the end of the 90 minutes duration, in the match played at the Dipo Dina International Stadium, Ijebu-Ode.
Speaking to the players, the 3SC gaffer, while commending them for putting in their best in the game, urged them to forget the loss and forge ahead.
“As for me, we have come to the end of the road as far as the Aiteo Cup is concerned.
” Our focus should now be on the important promotion battle. We cannot afford to miss promotion this season. If we get to the next stage of the Aiteo Cup and miss promotion, our people will not forgive us,” said the tactician.
“We have an important match against Giant Brillar on Sunday which we must win, therefore we should concentrate on preparing for the game, so that we can come out smoking on Sunday,” Agoye added.
