New boys, Remo Stars lost
their second game on the bounce and stay firmly rooted at the bottom
of the League table.
After a 2-1 loss at home on
Match Day 1, they lose by the same score line in Gombe against Gombe
United.
Fabason
Djoufouna’s 87th minute strike secured maximum points for Gombe
United and ended the dreams of Remo Stars picking a point on the
road.
The
Sky Blue Stars drew first blood after Captain Victor Mbaoma converted
a free kick beautiful in the 20th minute and Ndukwe was right on
point to make consecutive saves to deny Gombe United an equaliser
after the restart.
Manir
Ubale was close to giving the host the leveler as his header hit the
crossbar.
In
the 37th minute Gombe United won a FK and a powerful cross by
Ogundele Ola was headed into his own net by Oshobe Shuji, giving
Gombe United their equaliser.
The
first half ended in level terms and at the start of the second half
Gombe United showed intent and approached the game more physically
but we’re contained by the offside trap as the high line defence of
the Sky Blue Stars did a decent job.
Late
into the second half, in the 87th minute Fabason Djoufouna who
arrived late into the box was right on time to slot home a low cross
from Giwa Isaac to give the Dessert Scorpions the lead and eventually
the winning goal of the encounter.
Speaking
to RSFC Media after the defeat to Gombe United, Technical Adviser,
Nduka Ugbade remains positive that his wards will recover from the
sets backs in the first two games of the NPFL Season.
“The
boys played well today, Technical we were better and am positive my
boys will recover from this loss and get the season up and running in
our next home game against Abia Warriors,” Ugbade said

The
Sky Blue Stars will head back to Sagamu as they prepare to get their
season back on track with a win.
