3SC forced Sharks to a goalless draw in Port Harcourt on Sunday to record their first away point of the season, frustrating all efforts by the home team to register a goal.
Laide Okanlawon was superb at the heart of the Ibadan club’s goal with two central defenders, Francis Edem and Samuel Olabisi foiling Sharks attack.
3SC now have 16 points while Sharks are bottom of the table with 10 points.
Hakeem Busari expressed delight with the result, stressing that it reflects their superb run of form in front of their home crowd. He also reserved praises for the Port Harcourt club who he claimed are a good team.
“I feel very excited with the draw against Sharks. It was a good one for us coming at this stage of the season, it will complement our good home run and put us at an advantage,” Busari said.
“Sharks are a very good team, they gave us a very good fight but we had our game plan which actually worked for us.”
He urged the 3SC fans to keep believing in the team, stressing that they will strive hard to put smiles on their faces.
“I will urge our fans and supporters to believe in us and always be behind us. We will continue to wax stronger to show them that what we have been doing at home, we can equally do it away from home,” the 3SC manager assured.
“They should also know that when game is not going our way, it is not a deliberate act because we always want to win games.”
For Amodu Mohammed, Sharks left- back the center referee made several biased calls which cost the home team the game.
“It was a game we should have won, we scored two goals and the referee disallowed them. It was a game we deserve to win, but we were denied the victory,” Mohammed lamented.
