The coach Gbenga Ogunbote tutored Sunshine stars stepped on the gas in the second half to salvage the situation but they met an equally solid MFM FC defence.

Ifegwu Ojukwu broke free on the right and sends in a dangerous cross which evades Fuad Ekelojuoti’s diving head by inches.

Sunshine’s search continued as Adejubu aimed a shot from a distance but MFM’s Adeniyi Bamidele pulls a big save in the 77th minute of the game.

In the 80th minute, a last gasp defending from Onyebuchi Ifeanyi as he clears the line to keep the Olukoya Boys in the game.

The draw against MFM is Sunshine Stars’ seventh at home this season, the most by any team in the Nigerian top flight and they are also winless in 16 games(8D, 8L).

The result also means MFM FC now have 7 points in three away games in the NPFL.

Ten points separates both side on the table with Sunshine on 21 points and third from bottom while MFM has 31 points from 23 games respectively.
