Sunshine Stars head coach, Edith Agoye, has commended his players despite their defeat to Rivers United on Monday.
The Owena Waves suffered a 1-0 loss to Rivers United at the Adokiye Amiesimaka Stadium Port-Harcourt in their rescheduled fixture.
Morice Chukwu scored the winning goal for Rivers United in the first half.
