During the post-match interview, Solomon Ogbeide, the Sunshine Stars’ Technical Adviser, told newsmen he was sure of a better outing in the next game by his team.

He said he was sure of this in view of the performance of his players in the encounter against Wikki Tourists.

“I am trying to turn the squad into a winning team. I have not strengthened the team to my taste, because this is the team I inherited from my predecessor.

“I still have a lot of work to do to improve the team,’’ Ogbeide said.

Sunshine Stars will in their next match take on Abia Warriors FC in Umuahia, in a week 19 encounter in the league.
