NPFL: Doma United on Brink of Relegation After Dismal Run, Face Impossible Task on Final Day

Doma United’s relegation seems unavoidable due to their significant goal difference deficit, Footballrover reports.

To escape the drop, they now face an almost impossible task: winning their final game with a margin of 9-16 goals.

Once considered a promising season, it has now crumbled, leaving players and coaches helpless.

The team’s consistent struggles have broken the hearts of fans, who are left wondering where it all went wrong as they angrily attacked their visitors at the Gombe Township Stadium Pantami.

The Gombe state-based team hoped to salvage their faltering campaign with a home game against Sunshine Stars.

However, their dreams were dashed as Sunshine Stars clinched a narrow 1-0 victory on their soil, pushing the Savannah Tigers closer to relegation.

A 38th-minute goal from Yusuf Ibrahim made the difference for both sides.

This win secures Sunshine Stars’ place in the NPFL for next season, as they too were previously in danger of relegation.

Meanwhile, Doma United’s single win in their last 18 games means they now need an extraordinary large goal margin victory on the final day to avoid the drop.

The failure to beat Sunshine Stars has made Doma United’s survival almost impossible.

They must now beat Abia Warriors by a miraculous 15-0 scoreline and hope that both Akwa United and Sporting Lagos lose on matchday 38.

Currently, Doma United sits in 18th place with just 43 points, trailing Sporting Lagos and Akwa United by three points.

Many NPFL fans are left questioning what went wrong with the team, a side that went from nine games unbeaten and nine consecutive clean sheets to ending with a -16 goal difference.

The situation worsened when head coach Bala Abubakar resigned before the Sunshine Stars match, leaving the team in a tight position.

It’s a sad farewell to the Gombe boys, who will now bid goodbye to the NPFL.
