Nigeria Professional Football League Team Sunshine Stars have lept off the relegation waters After the Ondo State team beat Heartland FC by a lone goal in a Matchday 31 fixture played in Owerri, Imo State.
Owena Whales Striker, Ifegwu Ojukwu secured the lone Strike a minute before the hour mark by spinning the ball past the host’s team goalkeeper in a delayed NPFL game, no thanks to the earlier downpour.
The much-anticipated victory not only earns Sunshine Stars their second away win of the season but also lifts them out of the drop zone for the first time in 12 Matchdays.
It also means Jigawa Golden Stars descend to the bottom four in place of Sunshine Stars, who are one spot above the relegation zone
