Amoo assures 3SC of topflight football

Coach Fatai Amoo (pictured) has promised his relegation-battling side, 3SC, that they will retain their Nigeria Premier League (NPL) status at the end of the current season.

A relieved Amoo said he is happy to watch his side return to winning ways after struggling in the previous six games before the triumph over Kwara United.

“I must say I am happy that we won the game after failing to win in our last three home games. We have taken a bold step in escaping relegation. I want to tell our fans that this club will not be relegated this season,” said Amoo.

The winless streak of the former Nigerian champions stretches back to June 5 when they last won in the topflight against Enyimba in Ibadan.

It was however, veteran striker Kabiru Alausa, who got the winning goal for the Oluyole Warriors on 13 minutes at the Obafemi Awolowo Stadium in Ibadan.

In spite of getting a win in Saturday’s Week 33 game against Kwara United, Amoo is still worried about his side’s profligacy in front of goal.

“Though we won against Kwara United, I am still unsatisfied because we are still wasteful in front of goal. If we want to win games goal-scoring is one aspect that we must learn to perfect,” Amoo said.

Amoo has acknowledged that 3SC face difficult opponents in their last five games of the season.

3SC will play against Crown FC, Heartland, Juth, Lobi Stars and Dolphins to round off their campaign this season.

“At this point of the season every team you face want to win. And our next opponents are going to be tough. That is why we must be very focused for these games,” he said.
