2023/2024 NPFL Match Day 22: Defending champions, Enyimba Int'l FC ready for Gombe Utd scrap

Posted : 27 February 2024

Finidi George, the Technical Adviser of Enyimba International FC and the defending champions of the league, has declared that all league matches are important to the club and that there are no minnows in the league.

George, while reacting to the last fixtures in which the Peoples Elephant played to a goalless draw to earn a valuable point away against Bendel Insurance FC, assured that the team would regroup to rally for more points in the subsequent league fixtures.

Recall that Enyimba International FC was dumped out of continental football in their two attempts at CAF Champions League and CAF Confederation Cup, respectively. Therefore, the only silverware within reach remains the league and the Federation Cup.

The Peoples Elephant had, on Sunday in Match Day 21 of the 2023/2024 NPFL, played a goalless draw against the stalemate expert, Bendel Insurance, at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium in Benin City.

The decent result has improved the defending champions on the league standings as they are now in 4th place with 36 points, three points short of the league leaders, Lobi Stars FC of Markurdi.

For the traveling Gombe United FC, the important 2-0 win against the visiting Sporting Lagos FC should be a launchpad to better things ahead, but it remains to be debated whether they will be able to withstand the firepower of the Peoples Elephant right in front of their boisterous home fans.

For Gombe United FC, the gap between them and Enyimba International FC is so large that expecting an upset away could be termed as a utopian dream.

The Savannah Tigers sit in the 17th position, earning just 24 points from 21 matches.

It is also instructive to know that Gombe United FC has yet to beat Enyimba International FC in any open play since 2017.
