It is going to be a gritty affair in the NPFL Week Six fixture as Shooting Stars Sports Club welcome the visiting Rivers United FC at the Lekan Salami Stadium Adamasingba, Ibadan. The match is billed to commence at 4:00 pm on Sunday 5th of February, 2016.
Both teams are on the extremes of the log after five weeks into the season. While the homers, Shooting Stars are currently occupying the 19th position on the log with 4 points in 5 matches, Rivers occupies the 5th position with 3 draws and 2 wins accordingly.
Three losses on the road, a win and a draw at home is not making the home fans comfortable and this is already putting more pressure on the team of blended old and young players. The effects of the club’s last 0-2 away loss to ABS in Ilorin are still permeating in the air and the fans are not ready for more excuses, hence, Sunday encounter must be able to crunch out a win for the Oluyole Warriors.
