Technical Adviser of Shooting Stars Sports Club (3SC) of Ibadan, Gbenga Ogunbote believes his team would have picked the maximum points in Ilorin, but for carelessness and the red card issued to skipper Malomo Taofeek.

In his post match interview after the matchday eight clash played inside the mainbowl of the Kwara State Sports Complex in Ilorin, the 3SC sweat merchant lamented the late equaliser conceded by his team and the expulsion of his player.

The Oluyole Warriors were at the verge of grabbing the three points against Kwara United, until the Harmony Boys levelled things up with a minute left to full time.

He however, expressed happiness that his team ended up picking a point from the encounter.

“Even despite playing with ten men, I just feel like we were a little bit careless, we had managed the game up till 90 minutes. But be it as it may, it’s a consolation, it’s okay, we never laboured in vain.”

He revealed that his target, coming into the match, was to win.

“My target was to win, every coach’s target is to win a game but you can see it, as a result of the red card, our target was a little bit shattered. 

“You know Nigerian players, the moment a player gets red card, they tend to move back, thinking that it will affect them and I think this really affected us, but we are going to work seriously on this.”
