It’s was a game of misfortune for Remo Stars as Fabason Djoufouna 87th minute strike secured maximum points for Gombe United and ended the dreams of Remo Stars picking a point on the road. 
The Sky Blue Stars drew first blood after Captain Victor Mbaoma converted a free-kick beautifully in the 20th minute and Ndukwe was right on point to make consecutive saves to deny Gombe United an equaliser after the restart.
Manir Ubale was close in giving the host the leveler as his header hit the wood-work.
In the 37th minute, Gombe United won a free kick and a powerful cross by Ogundele Ola was headed into his own net by Oshobe Shuji and Gombe got their equaliser.
The first half ended in level terms and at the start of the second half, Gombe United showed intent and approached the game more physically but we’re contained by the offside trap as the high line defence of the Sky Blue Stars did a decent job.
Late into the second half in the 87th minute, Fabason Djoufouna who arrived late into the box was right on time to slot home a low cross from Giwa Isaac to give the Dessert Scorpions the lead and eventually the winning goal of the encounter.
Speaking to RSFC Media after the defeat to Gombe United Technical Adviser, Nduka Ugbade said he remained positive that his wards will recover from the two setbacks in the first two games of the new NPFL season.
“The boys played well today; technically, we were better and I am positive my boys will recover from this loss and get the season up and running in our next home game against Abia Warriors.
The Sky Blue Stars will head back to Sagamu as they prepare to get their season back on track with a win.
