NNL: 3SC Bemoan Disallowed Goal, Poor Pitch In Niyola Stalemate

Promotion-chasing Shooting Stars Sports Club of Ibadan have expressed displeasure over the poor condition of pitch and a disallowed goal against FC Niyola in Sunday’s NNL match day 4 game at the MKO Abiola Stadium, Abeokuta.

The Oluyole Warriors went in front on 45 minutes through Taiwo Muritala, who finished off a well laid pass from Adebayo Abayomi while the home side leveled up scores from a corner five minutes later through Femi Ojo, whose beautiful header sailed into the net unhindered.

The visitors felt that could have bagged the maximum if their second goal had not been disallowed by the centre referee, expressing their displeasure in a tweet.

“Mohammed Mohammed pounced on a rebound to slot home the ball, the referee points to the centre but changes his mind after assistant refereed raise his flag for offside,” read the tweet on the back of an earlier one in course of the game, which read: “The sandy pitch is hindering the Oluyole Warriors from playing their free flow football”.

They buttressed their assertion with the picture above.

The Pride of the West, as the club founded in 1950 are also called, were relegated from Nigeria Professional Football League in 2017 after ending the season in 17th position.

They, however, look poised to stage a return to the elite division, as they currently top Group B1 with 10 points and have not tasted defeat after four rounds of games in the new season.
