Remo Stars became the first team to be relegated from the 2016/2017 Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) this season after losing 3-1 at home to Rivers United yesterday in Sagamu.
With four matches left to be played, the “Sky Blues” return to Nigeria National League after just a season in the elite division which they were unable to avoid that fate as they got demoted.
Goals from Bernard Ovoke, Emeka Ogbugh and Esosa Igbinoba were all Stanley Eguma’s men needed to subdue the hosts who got their consolation strike through Oche Salefu.
