Ten-man Doma United held their host Wikki Tourist to a goalless draw at the Abubakar Tafawa Balewa Stadium, Bauchi as Jumbo Wisdom sees red.
The Savannah Tigers were the better team and had a goal ruled for an offside as it remained goalless at halftime.
The introduction of Bidemi and Amos Steven in place of Hillary Ekawu and Babas Theophilus in the second half added more spine to the team as they made instant impact in the game.
Bidemi came close to scoring and also created a massive chance for Chibuke at the end but couldn’t hit target.
In a game that United saw three yellow cards and one red, the home fans cheered the away team as they were entertained with some brilliant displays.
Clement Junior, Usman Musa, Jumbo Wisdom, Charles Chibuke, Kingdom Osai and Steven Amos both saw yellow before Jumbo was sent off in the additional minutes.
Overall, it was a good game but the visitors will be happy with a point and the hosts will be pleased to have kept a clean sheet.
While speaking after the game, Doma United’s Technical Adviser Akinade Onigbinde expressed satisfaction with the player’s performance.
“It was a good game, the boys played according to instruction and based on our game plan. You can see how our players turned the home fans to our fans with good football. If we can continue like this, the sky will be our limit. In general, it was a good game”.
About playing double away games, the coach said “It is not easy playing two success games away from home but we’re prepared for this and God’s willing, we’ll come out victorious.”
On his part, the captain of the team Haruna Aliyu says it’s a good thing to have picked a point away from home “We are excited to have picked a point away from home. We had a game plan, we executed it well, it’s just that we couldn’t get that winning goal but everything was good. and not for some reasons, we would have won. But we’re happy to have picked a point away from home”
Doma United’s next game is a midweek encounter away to Bayelsa United in Yenagoa on Wednesday.
