The Stars also created more chances; Iñaki Williams had his shot saved in the 18th minute and Kudus’ left footed strike right after was also saved.
Coach Chris Hughton introduced Antione Semenyo, Joseph Paintsil and Salis Abdul Samed in the 69th minute in an attempt to win the game, which ultimately paid off.
