There appears to be no reprieve for struggling side, Gombe United, after they were forced to a 1-1 draw by 3SC in the Nigeria Premier Football League (NPFL) week 23 match played yesterday at the Pantami Stadium Gombe.

Gombe United went in front as early as the 29th minute when Yusuf Abdulateef Taiye gave them the lead but on resumption, the visitors rallied back to draw level in the 79th minute through Mohammed Olawejaru Hadi.

The ‘Savannah Scorpions ‘as Gombe United are called, piled pressure on the defence of 3SC for the much needed winner which failed to come till the blast of the final whistle.

The draw leaves Gombe United deep in relegation waters where they are placed second from bottom with a paltry 22 points.

Out of 23 matches, Gombe United have managed to record seven wins, four draws and 12 losses including the recent 4-0 thrashing at Enyimba.

Shortly before the scandalous loss to Enyimba in Aba, the former Head Coach of Gombe United, Mohammed Baba Ganaru threw in the towel following what he said was the precarious financial situation in the club.

So, since the start of the second round on February 17, Gombe United have managed to pick only four points after one win, two losses and a draw.

They lost 0-2 against Bayelsa United in Yenagoa, and returned home to win 2-0 against Sporting FC Lagos before the crash at Enyimba in week 22.

Next for Gombe United is a trip to Benin City where they are to lock horns with Bendel Insurance on Friday.

Meanwhile, their city rivals, Doma United, who had an impressive run in the first round, have continued to struggle since the commencement of the second stanza.

The ‘Savannah Tigers’ finished the first round in third position but managed to pick up only one point in the second round after suffering three losses in a row.

They lost 3-2 at Rivers United, then 0-1 loss at home to Rangers followed by 0-2 defeat at Bayelsa United before the barren draw at home against Sporting Lagos last Sunday.

However, Doma United are hoping to revive their campaign on Sunday against Enyimba in Aba.
