First win excites Remo Stars coach

27 February 2014, 13:21Israel Ojoko

Lagos – Remo Stars coach Shola Adewuyi was impressed with the performance of his lads after they managed a 1-0 victory over Ekiti United in the Nigerian National League.

A rigorous defensive play from Ekiti United, coupled with some missed chances, presented a tense evening for the Sky Blue Stars as they had to leave it to the dying seconds of the game to secure maximum points through the boots of Samson Paul.

The victory is the first for Remo Stars after two draws in their first two games, a development that must put Adewuyi on cloud nine.

"I am very pleased with the result, I was confident we were going to get the three points. It wasn't easy as our opponents made sure we had a difficult game."

"Samson Paul has always come up with these sort of magical moments, he also did this last season against Bolowotan FC to earn us a point - now he has won us the game."

"We weren't converting our chances in front of goal despite creating a lot of opportunities and that's something that can happen in football. We are keen to address this issue before our next league game."

Remo Stars travel down to Nnewi to take on Gabros in their next fixture of the Nigeria National League.
