 Remo Stars’ struggle in their first season in the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) continued on Wednesday as they suffered a 0-3 reverse at the hands of Cup holders FC Ifeanyiubah in a rearranged fixture.

It is now seven games on the spin for Remo Stars without a win.

Last season’s top scorer in the Nigeria top flight, Godwin Obaje, scored twice and Ivorian defender Adou Blaise also scored as they romped to a 3-0 victory at the FC Ifeanyiubah.

Remo Stars made the trip to the southeast without their captain and leading scorer, Victor Mbaoma, and goalkeeper David Walbe.

Under fire FC Ifeanyiubah head coach Yaw Preko handed Brazilian Alberico da Silva his first start of the season with Blaise, Tony Msonter and Tamen Medrano being the only players to make the startlist for the Anambra Warriors from the team that draw 2-2 with Abia Warriors on Sunday.

The first half was well contested and the two teams could not produce any goals.

Eight minutes after the restart, Obaje converted from the spot for FC Ifeanyiubah after Remo Stars’ Ekene Awazie handled the ball in his penalty area and that set the tone for two more to come.

On 55 minutes Jimoh Oni scored but the referee correctly ruled out for offside.

Then FC Ifeanyiubah really left it late to secure the contest and the points as Blaise popped up to head home Alberico’s cross for the second goal of the game.

In stoppage time of the second half Obaje got his second of the game after Alberico’s pass was cushioned with the head by Aniyikaye to the path of the striker who made no error in finishing past Remo Stars goalkeeper Chizoba Ndukwe.

The win lifts FC Ifeanyiubah out of the bottom-four into 13th place with 14 points from 11 matches while Remo Stars remain at the base of the NPFL standings.

Kano Pillars pushed themselves further up the standings with a 1-0 win to stay within touching distance of the leaders Plateau United and second-placed El-Kanemi Warriors.

Alassan Ibrahim’s first-half goal was enough for Kano Pillars to edge Wikki Tourists 1-0 at the Sani Abacha Stadium in Kano on Wednesday.

The Kano club are now in third place with 20 points from 11 matches. supersport.com)
