Goalkeeper Ayo Ojo in no doubt that Sunshine Stars deserved their win over Lobi Stars on Thursday afternoon.
A Chibundu Amah hat-trick delivered the points for the Owena Whales, who are now two points off the final play off place in the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) Group A.
Speaking to Footballlive.ng after the match, Ojo insisted Sunshine Stars deserved to take the points.
“It was a really emotional game. We’re deserving winners,” the former Osun United shot stopper said.
“We ended well with Amah’s treble in the last 12 minutes. We reacted well and got an important win.
“We’ve had a lot of the ball, we stuck together, pressed well and did a lot of damage in attack.”
Sunshine Stars are fifth on the NPFL Group A ladder with 19 points from 14 games and have eight more matches to play as only three teams will qualify for the Super 6.
“There are a lot of finals to be played for all teams. This win gives us a lot to keep going,” Ojo added.
