Olowo set for Sunshine Stars debut

Newly-signed defender, Emmanuel Olowo (pictured), is in line to make his first appearance in the colours of Sunshine Stars in Sunday's Glo Premier League game against Kwara United.

Olowo is one of the players listed by Sunshine Stars head coach, Fatai Amoo in his provisional squad for the match billed for the Akure Township Stadium from 4pm local time.

Already, the centre-back acquired from Cup holders, Heartland, has been handed squad number 33 for the rest of the season.

"Emmanuel is a decent addition for us. We needed someone with experience and leadership qualities in the heart of defence and he definitely fits the bill. He has played top level football in the league and on the continent and we are happy to have snapped him up.

"Remember our captain, Godfrey (Oboabona) is always away on international duty so bringing in Emmanuel was something we needed to do to give the team more steel at the back," said Amoo.

Olowo is already bracing up for a tough tie first game for the Akure Gunners against rivals Kwara United.

"I have played against them this season already while at Heartland and I know them. Though we lost that game but I think playing at Sunshine Stars is a whole new challenge for me after spending five to six years at Heartland," said Olowo to
