NPFL: Rivers United fight back to deny Lobi Stars

16 May 2019, 23:15

Rivers United fought back from a goal down to share the spoil in a week 20 fixture of the Nigeria Professional Football League.

United was hoping to use home advantage to secure all three points but fans at the Yakubu Gowon Stadium were disappointed when the visiting Lobi Stars took the lead.

Lobi Stars went ahead in the 26th minute when Sikiru Alimi's well weighted cross deflected Kunle Odunlami into his own net.

Rivers United had the chance to equalise before the break when they were awarded a penalty but Ossy Martins' poor effort was punched out by goalkeeper Egbe Ospino.

After they break, Rivers United showed the result of a halt-time pep talk as they came out smoking.

And it was Adebambo Ademola, who came off the bench, that scored the much-desired equaliser with his first touch to ensure Rivers United manage one point from the encounter.
