Gombe United record first win of the season, beat Lobi Stars 3-0

After three winless games in the 2021/2022 Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL), Gombe United, on Monday, secured their first win of the season by defeating Lobi Stars Football Club of Makurdi 3-0.

NAN reports that the match day four fixtures was played at Pantami Stadium, Gombe.

The Makurdi-based team succumbed to pressure from Gombe United in the second half, following a tough and goalless battle in the first half.

Reacting at a post-match conference, the Technical Adviser of Gombe United Football Club, Aliyu Zubairu, dedicated the victory to the fans of the club.

He said that the fans had been relentless in their supports for the team.

Zubairu said since the commencement of the league, his boys had been playing well, but had not been lucky with goals.
According to him, the win will boost the confidence level of the team, adding that his boys will no longer play under tension.

The technical adviser expressed optimism that his team would secure, at least, a point when they faced Katsina United in their next match.

On his part, the Assistant Coach of Lobi Stars, Eugine Agagbe, however, described the outcome of the match as unfortunate, noting that the performance of his team in the second half of the game resulted in the defeat.

Agagbe, however, said in spite the loss, he was not disappointed at his boys, adding that the defeat would not affect his team’s morale ahead of their next match against Akwa United of Uyo.

“Any game that is played and gone, you let it go; you take home the mistakes so that you can improve and win the next game,” he said.
