Ogunmodede Hails Remo Stars’ Mental Strength in Super 6 Race


Despite the points and goals deductios from their total tally, Remo Stars head coach Daniel Ogunmodede has reaffirmed his team’s ambition to finish in the top three of the 2022/23 NPFL season.


Luckily, the deduction was eventually overturned.

Remo Stars was initially thrown off by the point deduction in the highly-competitive Group A super-six race, however, they bounced back with a seven-game unbeaten run in the second round, and won their appeal for the points deduction reversal.



This has enabled them to reclaim third place in the standings with 27 points from 16 matches.

The gaffer was delighted following the 1-0 victory against Akwa United on Sunday. He praised the players for their mental fortitude and thanked the fans for their unwavering support.

“I thank the fans for their support and patience during difficult times. Imagine all the time that we had three points and three goals deducted, they were behind us.

“We fought so hard and if we had given up, these three points we got against Akwa wouldn’t have mattered. Nevertheless, we will keep fighting till the last day, we have two more matches and the six points there are very important to us,” Ogunmodede said after the game.

“This is our seventh game without a loss and five without a win, so we know what it means for us to win this game. We understood the consequences of dropping points. If we had, it could have been five straight draws which is not good for us.”
