Shooting Stars Sports Club (3SC) players are on an indefinite strike to press home for the payment of their salaries ahead of their final day make or mar clash at Niger Tornadoes on Sunday.

The players who are being owed salaries, allowances and match bonuses by the management practically stayed away from their training ground at Lekan Salami Stadium in Ibadan on Tuesday.

The team is scheduled to depart Ibadan on Thursday for Lokoja to face Niger Tornadoes in Sunday’s Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) matchday 38 clash at the Confluence Stadium in Lokoja.

Supersport.com source said the players are insisting on being paid all their entitlements before returning to the pitch for the all-important match at Niger Tornadoes on Sunday.

“The players said pointedly that they are fighting for their right to be paid salaries, allowances and match bonuses.“

They are insisting on not calling off the strike or returning to the training ground until every indebtedness owed to them is fully paid by the management.

“They feared that the management will not pay the outstanding entitlements once the on-going league season comes to an end on Sunday.

An unnamed member of the coaching crew said though the players have the right to demand for their salaries they should be considering the precarious state of the team on the top-flight log.

“The players are right to demand for the payment of their entitlements but the method, timing and state of the team should be put into consideration.“

I think there is always a better way to fight for one’s legitimate right especially when it comes to salaries.

“The whole exercise is an ill wind that blows nobody any good and I pray that reason will prevail so that we can still move fast to cover lost ground to prepare to face the Minna side,” said the source to supersport.com.

The Ibadan landlords are 16th on the 20-team top-flight log on 50 points 13 behind leaders, Plateau United and may go down on relegation if they failed to get a decent result at Niger Tornadoes. © supersport.com
