Remo Stars’ title hopes dented in loss to Lobi Stars

Remo Stars’ title hopes dented in loss to Lobi Stars

Remo Stars’ dream of winning the Nigeria Premier Football League title took a major hit after a dramatic 3-2 loss to Lobi Stars in their matchday 35 clash.

Victory would have put the Ikenne-based team on top of the table, while their title rivals, Rangers, faced a tough match against Enyimba.

Lobi Stars dominated the first half, with Christian Izuchukwu scoring in the 6th minute and Chinedu Sunday Chukwu adding a second in the 38th. Remo Stars responded just before halftime with a goal from Sikiru Alimi.

The Makurdi side extended their lead in the 85th minute through Stanley Oganbor. However, there was a late twist when Chinedu Sunday Chukwu accidentally put the ball in his own net, giving Remo a glimmer of hope. Unfortunately, their efforts to equalize proved futile.

While Remo Stars faltered, this win boosts Lobi Stars’ chances of finishing in the top 3 and securing a spot in the CAF Confederation Cup. They are now just four points behind the top three positions.
