Shooting Stars forward Ajani Ibrahim is confident the club will escape the drop following Sunday’s 1-0 home win against Nigeria Professional Football League champions Enyimba, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.
The former Sunshine Stars player netted in the 23rd minute to help the Oluyole Warlords beat the Aba giants for the first time in seven outings.
3SC remain in the 18th position in the table despite the win and face a difficult task to maintain their top flight status.
Ajani is however upbeat they will stay up at the end of the season.
“The win against Enyimba will serve as a good motivating factor for us and I believe we will stay in the NPFL at the end of the season,” he told Completesportsnigeria.com.
“There are still a lot of matches to be played which gives us the opportunity to continue fighting hard.
“We know it is going to be difficult but it is a task that is achievable.
“In coach Gbenga Ogunbote we have a man who knows how to get the best out of his players and under him nothing is impossible.”
