ABS apologise for relegation, Shooting Stars await League decision.

Shooting Stars await ruling on relegation fate
ABS FC have apologized to
their fans after they got relegated from the Nigeria Professional
Football League on the final match day, but Shooting Stars believe
there is still something to hope for.
ABS needed to win in Lafia
against Nasarawa United then hope for other results to go their way
to escape the drop but eventually they lost 2-1 to the hosts who were
not in any way benevolent.
Director of Football of the
club, Alloy Chukwuemeka in a statement released on Monday apologized
to fans of the club, saying, relegation was not part of what the club
bargained for at the start of the season.
He
added that although the club started the season on a bright note,
they were later affected by what he called “the usual Nigeria
football environmental factors”.
Chukwuemeka
however expressed hope that with the solid football management
structure in his club, they would make a quick return to the premier
League next season.
“With
our sustainable football management structure I can assure you that
we will bounce back to the NPFL soonest because that is where we
belong.
“The
objective of our proprietor, Bukola Saraki, for the club was to give
young boys a lifeline through football.
“We
have been able to achieve this as we had three of our victorious
NPFL/LALIGA U-15 Promises boys playing in the main team now.
“Few
of the other young players we discovered may also move on to bigger
clubs too.
“The
beauty of it is that we have plenty talents in Kwara and Nigeria in
general and we will discover more when we start the season,”
Chukwuemeka said.
Chukwuemeka
apologised to the fans for the embarrassment brought them with the
relegation but assured them the team will bounce back sooner than
expected.
Shooting
Stars wait for succour from League Management Company/ Gombe United
Shooting Stars on the other
hand do not believe they have been relegated as they wait on the
result of an inconclusive Match Day 38 fixture.
After a 2-0 loss in Lokoja to
Niger Tornadoes, Shooting Stars were placed in bottom 4, but now hope
the game between Gombe United and Wikki Tourist that did not finish
will be concluded.
A statement from the club’s
media officer, Jubril Arowolo put up on social media on Monday went,
“The entire Shooting Stars FC appreciate the concerns of all
about our 0-2 loss to Niger Tornadoes yesterday but we await the
outcome of the Gombe United-Wikki abandoned tie (the game was
disrupted in 27 minutes of play) before our final standing.
On
clear term, we are not relegated yet. Thanks.”
According
official league table released by the League Management Company on
Tuesday morning, they are await the report of the game between Gombe
United and Wikki Tourists.
Wikki
Tourists were one goal up at the time the game was abandoned.
Shooting Stars need Gombe United to win the encounter to be free of
relegation.
Remo
Stars and Gombe United were relegated before Match Day 38 and have
been joined by ABS FC.
One
of Shooting Stars or Wikki Tourists will add to the number.
