Kaduna United overpowers Shooting Stars

21 October 2013, 18:12

Abuja - Kaduna United on Sunday beat visiting Shooting Stars of Ibadan 2-0 in a week 38 Glo Premier League match played at the Kaduna Township Stadium.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the match was one of the last matches in the league season, and both sides did not have much at stake in the game.

While the 3Sc were already relegated as they sat in 20th place on the 20-club league table, Kaduna United were well above the relegation zone with 53 points.

The match’s first half ended goalless, even though the hosts dominated the game and even lost a penalty kick in the 37th minute through Emmanuel Panamaras.

Linus Adams however scored the opening goal for the home side through a penalty kick in the 57th minute of the game.

Iliya Jibo scored the second goal in the 73rd minute also through a penalty kick.

Speaking shortly after the match, coach Ben Duamlong of Kaduna United expressed satisfaction with his team’s performance of ending in the top 10.

Mustapha Zukoki, a member of the Kaduna United FC Management Board, praised his club’s players for working hard to end the season in a comfortable position.

"The league was challenging and competitive, but I am happy we were not relegated,’’ he said.

Speaking also, the head coach of the visiting team, Akin Busari, expressed satisfaction with the match’s outcome.

"Even though we have been relegated today, but we accept defeat and will now go on to work extra hard.

"There is room for improvement and that is what we will work on,’’ he said.
