Shooting Stars ace Anietie Uko deflected praise to his teammates after their matchday 8 victory over Kwara United.
A brace from summer signing, Adejubu Ayomide secured their 2-1 win over Kwara United after Alao Danbani had gave the visitors the lead in the 61st minutes.
Speaking after the game, Anietie hailed his players for not letting their heads drop after going behind in the second half.
“We all have every reason to celebrate this special victory,” he told Lodgexpress.com.
“I wouldn’t want us to be known as a side that looks back and feels sorry for ourselves after going by a goal down.
“It’s vital that we’re positive and keep pushing forward. Wednesday’s victory was a huge win; it puts us in the firm position away from the relegation zone and now we really want to look forward and maintain the momentum.
“We’ve got MFM FC and Heartland in our sights and we want to do everything it will take to secure positive results in those fixtures.”
