Lobi Stars management have said that the Gold Cup has shown their strengths and weakness to the coaching crew as they get set for the start of the new league season.
This is the second time the 'Food Basket' team is taking part in the prestigious league club tourney, touted as Nigeria’s biggest pre-season football tournament and bankrolled Senator Abdulfatai Buhari.
Lobi Stars tweeted thus, "The decision to play @GoldCupTourney has made massive impact on @LobiStars. We salute the organizers of the championship."
David Tyakase gave Lobi Stars the semi-final ticket as they shared the spoils with Crown FC in a game that brought the best out of the Godwin Koko Uwua side.
Last season after their semi-final exit from the Gold Cup tourney, Lobi Stars got the season off to a flying start when they pipped Shooting Stars at the Lekan Salami Stadium, Adamasingba.
Kingsley Eduwo winning and only goal of the game handed Lobi their first 3points of the season.
