Popularly known as the Akure Gunners for their style of play which became famous under the tutelage of Gbenga Ogunbote in his first stint with the club, Sunshine Stars have now gone ten matches without a win in the league this season.
The team was asked to prosecute their home matches at the Soccer Temple in Lagos after their last home game against Nasarawa United didn’t go down well. Playing Enyimba in Akure would’ve been a difficult one for Sunshine Stars considering their current form not to now talk of playing at a neutral venue and as expected, the People’s Elephant compounded the woes of the Gbenga Ogunbote’s led side, inflicting the seventh defeat of the season upon them and their fifth in the last 10 games.
