Sunshine Stars Head Coach, Duke Udi is quite excited winning the six-goal thriller clash at top-flight newcomers, Abubakar Bukola Saraki (ABS) FC.
The Owena Waves defeated the Saraki Boys 4-2 in Sundayâ€™s Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) Match-day 28 clash at the Kwara State Stadium in IIorin.
Udi however spoke glowingly of the IIorin side and their Head Coach, Henry Makinwa despite ending the clash on a losing note.
â€œABS FC are fantastic and tactically good side with a fantastic coach in the person of Henry Makinwa.
â€œI must confess that this is the best match I have played since I took over at Sunshine Stars with due respect to other teams.
â€œI must say kudos to my players, too to score four goals in an away match, I think this is the first time a team will score four goals in an away match in the on-going top-flight.
â€œOf course, you must give it to my players the bragging right as the best side on matchday.
â€œThis is the first time, too we are witnessing six-goal thriller in the on-going top-flight with the away team scoring four while the homers scored two so we are quite excited with the outcome of the match.
â€œOf course, the away win is quite crucial in our on-going campaign as I have never thought of relegation upon assumption at Sunshine Stars.
â€œRight now we have 30 points to fight for in the remainder of the league and those points are my interest.
â€œOf course, itâ€™s possible we earn for ourselves the entire 30 points at stake to finish third on the league log and head to the continent.
â€œRight now we do not have a home so I tell the players to psyche themselves to win anywhere and I think it paid off well in todayâ€™s victory.
â€œWe will continue to fight till the last match on the seasonâ€™s calendar,â€ said the former Nigerian international and Osun United coach to supersport.com.
