After losing its last three league games and ending its eleven-match unbeaten run in the process, Remo Stars recovered with a 2-0 win over Katsina United to move to the third position on the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) table.
Tolulope Ojo opened the scoring for Remo Stars in the additional minutes of the first half from a rebound at the Remo Stars Stadium, Ikenne-Remo, Ogun State.
Andy Okpe doubled Remo Stars’ lead from the penalty spot in the 72nd minute after an initial argument for who will play the spot-kick between him and Abayomi Adebayo.
After the game, Remo Stars coach, Gbenga Ogunbote while speaking with pressmen acknowledged that he was at fault for the scuffle as he didn’t appoint a penalty taker before the game due to fact that the team has not been awarded any this season.
Rivers United maintained the top spot on the league table after a 2-1 win against Nasarawa United.
Goals from Chijioke Akuneto and Rafiu Kayode Isahq had given the Port Harcourt-based side a 2-0 lead before Tochukwu Amaechi reduced the deficit for Nasarawa United.
Elsewhere, Dakkada FC and Heartland FC picked home wins against Lobi Stars and Enyimba International FC respectively while the game between Enugu Rangers and Kano Pillars ended in a 0-0 draw as Abia Warriors pipped Shooting Stars 2-1.
