A 71st minute goalkeeping error by Mohammed Galadima and a cheeky strike by Ayuba Francis ensured Nasarawa United shared the points with visiting Gombe United at the New Jos Stadium in the 2022/23 Nigeria Premier Football League match-day fourteen clash on Saturday evening.
After the first-half ended in a goalless stalemate, Gombe United went ahead in a bizarre manner after the home side’s goal tender, Mohammed Galadima, turned a cross by Usman Abbas into his own net.
The Solid Miners recovered from the shock and drew parity in the 84th minute via Nigeria’s U-20 youth attacker, Ayuba Francis.
The scoreline remained unchanged until the final whistle, a result that stagnates United at 9th position on the Group ‘A’ log with ten points.
The Solid Miners will next play Plateau United on Sunday, 30th April, 2023, at the New Jos Stadium by 4pm.
