Kabiru Dogo was encouraged by what he saw from his Sunshine Stars team, who defeated Katsina United 2-0 on Monday.
The former Nasarawa United gaffer saw goals from Dayo Ojo and Fuad Ekelojuoti settle this Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) Week 8 tie at the Ondo Sports Complex in their favour and left their Coach upbeat.
“Katsina United always play very good football and usually score,” reflected Dogo afterwards to Footballlive.ng.
“They showed a good attacking display and created goal opportunities, but we’re very pleased with this win.
“From a physical point of view we are very fit, and have been since the start of the season, which is a great help in tough matches.
“You can tell when a rival team is beginning to tire, they lose rhythm on the pitch, whereas we always maintain a steady pace, which doesn’t alter when we make substitutions.
“Our fitness really helps us to keep the pressure on our rivals and maintain a balanced game play. Katsina United are a strong squad, who have a lot of opportunities to get goals in every match.
“If we do things right from the start and maintain a solid defence, the goal opportunities will always come.
