Shooting Stars of Ibadan paid Kano Pillars back in their own coins on Sunday as they thrashed the former champions 4-0 in one of Sunday’s Nigeria Professional Football League games.

Ajani Ibrahim and Ifegwu Ojukwu got the first two goals for Shooting Stars on Sunday.

Sunday Adetunji added two more in the second half as the striker took his season’s tally to 10 goals.

With the big win over Pillars, Shooting Stars have now garnered 44 points from 32 matches, a point behind Pillars.

In Lagos, the relegation battle between MFM FC and Abia Warriors was hampered due to heavy rain as the pitch at the Agege Stadium was rendered unplayable due to the downpour.

The match will now be played by 8 a.m. Monday at the same venue.
