Reacting after the game, Uko who netted his first goal as a Shooting Stars player, told Lodgexpress;

“Everyone is excited to score his first and obviously the winning goal in a game. I’m glad it came at that time.

“It was a tough match. Nasarawa United tried to apply pressure but despite that we had chances to have gotten a second goal, which unfortunately we didn’t find. When you’re leading by 1-0 there is always some difficulty accompanied with maintaining it. Our players attitude was great and they put in a solid defensive display. We didn’t concede.”

Uko who was forced out of the pitch after 30 minutes with a minor muscle strain, added;

“I left the game due to minor muscle strain which I’m sure will bounce back soonest. I’m glad we’re heading for a break and that will serve as an opportunity to rest myself and get ready for the concluding round of the season.”
