Mbaoma's 12th league goal sends Enyimba 2nd on NPFL log

Posted : 12 March 2024

League defending champions, Enyimba Int'l FC sweated against Doma United on Sunday before a late goal from the league's top scorer, Chijioke Mbaoma, broke the deadlock, handing the Aba Giants all three points.

Doma, who won the reverse fixture in Gombe during the first stanza last year, approached the match cautiously, playing defensively throughout the game. Former Enyimba right back Yakubu Bilal led his new team, aiming to secure a point in Aba. The team also included Tijani.

The persistent attack and the introduction of more creativity by Coach Finidi George, with Joseph Atule, Uche Collins, Bernard Ovoke, and Akanni Elijah, pegged the Gombe side back before they finally caved in. A ping pong ball inside the penalty area from Uwana Asuquo's corner kick was poked home by the lethal striker Mbaoma, much to the delight of the Aba fans.

Although Doma United's players and officials tried to protest, the center referee stood his ground, awarding the goal and giving the nine-time league champions all three points.

Enyimba next visits Ikenne for a match against Remo Stars on Match Day 25, seeking revenge against fellow top side chasers who remain the only team to have beaten Enyimba in Aba this season.
