Coach Akure’s Sunshine Stars FC Edith Agoye is desperately looking for her first win of the season as her team take on Enugu Rangers in Awka on Sunday (today), PUNCH Extra Sports reports.

After picking up a point away from home in their opening game against Doma United on matchday one, the Owena Whales drew 1-1 at Rivers United on Thursday, a result that meant the Akoko-born tactician was unable to secure a win in his competitive home debut for Sunshine Stars.

While left angry by the defending champions’ antics in a 1-1 draw, Agoye was unequivocal about the importance of repaying the fans with an immediate away win.

“It was two points lost, considering how many chances we created in both halves and the fact that we had to rely on a penalty to score, it wasn’t encouraging. However, to get a point out of a losing position, we’ll take it and try to make up for the two lost points in our next game.

“That being the case, we have to reconsider ourselves and fight for the three points at stake. We cannot afford to lose and we will put everything we have into the game, said Agoye PUNCH Extra Sports.

Sunshine Stars now find themselves down to just two pints after two games and sit in sixth position in Group A.

The former 3SC manager was hired before the start of the season to lead the team following the departure of Cameroonian tactician Emmanuel Deutsch, who steadied the course after Deji Ayeni joined Akwa United midway through last season.
