Sunshine Stars defender Sunday Abe says the team had been unlucky with officiating this campaign and it has contributed to the side’s poor run.
Sunshine Stars slipped into the relegation zone following the 1-0 defeat to Rivers United at the Adokiye Amiesimaka stadium in Port Harcourt on Sunday.
Waheed Adebayo and Sadiq Yusuf went close to scoring Sunshine Stars on numerous occasions, but Ospini Egbe’s brave goalkeeping kept them at bay.
Godwin Aguda notched what proved the winner, but the visitors saw two penalty appeal waved away by the referee after Sadiq Yusuf and Chinedu Udechukwu were brought down in the box.
Speaking after the game, Sunday Abe admitted the team has its challenges, but he also claimed that they are also paying heavily for poor performance of referees.
” We have our challenges but we want the referees to try their best and do the right thing during game,” Abe said.
“I am not the type of captain that complains about referee, but no sense in it when you prepare all week for a game to be affected by referee.
“If you check our past eight games you will know what I am saying. I am not here to attack anybody, just an appeal for them to do the right thing so our league can improve.” He concluded.
Sunshine slipped to 17th position on the table with 18 points after failing to win any of the past 11 matches.
