Shooting Stars edged Kano Pillars 1-0 in a rescheduled Glo Premier League fixture to move out of the relegation zone on Wednesday.

Junior Ajayi’s early match-winning strike separated both sides as the Lekan Salami stadium hosts scraped just their second victory of the campaign.

The Oluyole Warriors have now recorded seven points from six matches this season and move up to 13th in the standings. Pillars have suffered their fourth defeat and are on 9 points from a possible 21.

The match started at a break-neck speed, with the Ibadan club making the most of their early chances as Ajayi turned inside of his marker to finish superbly from a Rasheed Olabiyi assist in the 11th minute.

Azeez Shobowale and Samuel Tswanya came close to netting an immediate equaliser but could not beat home goalkeeper Abiodun Akande.

3SC could have doubled their lead few minutes into the second half had Usman Suleiman not cleared off the goaline Najeem Olulokun’s lofted ball over Pillars goalkeeper Yusuf Mohammed.

Pillars continued to apply pressure high up the park but lacked the killer instinct in the final third.

Ajayi then failed to capitalise on Yusuf’s poor positioning in the 85th minute, when he skipped past the ontushing goalkeeper only to throw caution to the winds.
