Sunshine Stars head coach Duke Udi believes his side have escaped relegation in the on-going top-flight after a massive win against FC IfeanyiUbah.

The Owena Waves whipped the Anambra Warriors 4-0 in Sunday’s Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) matchday 37 clash at the Otunba Dipo Dina Stadium in Ijebu Ode.

Ajibola Otegbeye scored from the penalty spot in the 18th minute to give the Akure landlords the lead and only goal in the first half of the clash.

Central defender Kelechi Ogoh scored a brace in the 56th and 71st minute while former FC IfeanyiUbah attacking midfielder Tope Orelope grabbed the winner for his side in the 80th minute to hand the Akure side the three points at stake.

Udi said his side met a tactically and technically sound side but insisted that the Akure outfit were hungrier for the win.

“Yes, Sunshine Stars will certainly play in the top-flight next season after this massive victory against FC IfeanyiUbah.“

I can tell you comfortably that we are completely out of relegation for this season with a game to go at Remo Stars.

“What we need at Remo Stars in Sagamu next Sunday is just a point to successfully put a seal on our top-flight stay.” © supersport.com
