Nine minutes into the second half, Olufemi Obieokuwa gave the Shooting Stars the lead, while team captain Idris Guda equalised for the hosts in the 90th minute through a penalty kick.

NAN reports that a sideline event before the match ended was however the argument between Bauchi football fans at the stadium and the Technical adviser of Wikki Tourists, Kabiru Dogo.

The fans said his use of substitutes was an “indiscriminate substitution of players”.

Shooting Stars’ Chief Coach, Edith Agoye, in an interview with journalists also said the match was a tough one between both sides.

“We came in to Bauchi yesterday (Saturday) and my players were very tired. But they still gave their best.

“We were here for a purpose and unfortunately we didn’t achieve it as we didn’t get the points we wanted. But, all the same, it is still very okay,” he said.

Meanwhile, Dogo could however not be reached by a NAN correspondent at the stadium for his comments on the match.

NAN reports that WIkki Tourists FC now have 46 points and are in the 10th position on the NPFL log.
