By Kayode Ayeni –
Shooting Stars Sports Club of Ibadan brighten their hope of surviving relegation at the Lekan Salami Sports Complex Adamasingba in the Week 37 match of the Nigerian Premier after defeating high flying Wikki Tourist of Bauchi by one goal to nil.
The result ensured Wikki are out of contention for the title this season.
It was a ding dong affair in the opening half of the encounter as both teams tried to outplay each other with 3SC’s Sunday Adetunji missing a glaring chance in the 24th minute, and Wikki’s Ibrahim Alhassan hitting the upright in the 35th minute.
The second half of the encounter however was much more livelier with Olabisi Samuel scoring in the 54th minute as he nodded home a well taken cross by Ifeagwu Ojukwu.
All efforts to increase the tally by 3SC were thwarted by the Wikki defence line.
