Struggles in two key areas have left Lobi Stars sweating in the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL)
Goals win games, we can all agree on that.
In order to score goals, shots – and more specifically accurate shots – have to be fired.
If you are not getting efforts away, and those you are fail to trouble opposing goalkeepers, how can you expect to emerge victorious?
These are questions Lobi Stars manager Kabiru Dogo should currently be putting to his squad.
In the last four games in the 2020/21 campaign, Stars have collected a miserly three points and scored just one goal.
They really should not be finding things this difficult.
It’s not a secret that team relies so much on the Golden Boots of Ossy Martins, who they have missed in the last three games due to red card picked up in day 6 against Rangers.
In Ossy’s absence, Lobi Stars have hit fewer shots on target, despite boasting the likes of Chinonso Okonkwo, Segun Alebiosu, Abdulkareem Mumini on their books.
All is not lost for Lobi Stars as they will have their main back this weekend in the top flight.
