Doma United FC

Doma United surged back to the summit of the Nigeria Premier Football League (NPFL) table with a convincing 2-0 victory over Katsina United at the Pantami Stadium on Saturday, January 6, 2024.

The match saw early excitement as Sani Suleiman, making his return to the Doma lineup, combined effectively with Emmanuel Ekpenyong in the second minute. Ekpenyong’s intricate interplay with Samuel Enefiok set the stage for Bidemi Owoku, who, after an initial blocked shot, demonstrated remarkable tenacity to head home, giving Doma the lead within two minutes of kickoff.

United’s dominance continued, and they extended their lead in the 8th minute. A long pass from Haruna Aliyu found Andrew Majalisa, who swiftly delivered a low cross to Samuel Enefiok.

Enefiok adeptly maneuvered past the goalkeeper to secure Doma’s second goal.

Despite the absence of Samuel Matthew in midfield, Doma United remained in control, with Sani Suleiman shining in the center of the park.

Saifullahi, typically a key player, started on the bench. Bidemi Owoku had an opportunity to further widen the lead with a volley, but his attempt sailed over the bar, and the Tigers entered halftime with a comfortable 2-0 advantage.

In the second half, Katsina United held more possession but struggled to pose a serious threat to Kingdom Osayi in the Doma goal.

Their best chance came through a headed effort that missed the target, leaving them without a lifeline.

With this commanding victory, Doma United reclaimed the top spot in the NPFL ahead of Remo Stars and Lobi Stars, both scheduled for matches on Sunday. The Savannah Tigers maintained their dominance on home turf, preserving their clean sheet record at the Pantami Stadium.

Looking ahead, Doma United shifts focus to their next challenge – an away encounter against Abia Warriors in week 18 scheduled for Sunday, January 14th. The team’s supporters eagerly anticipate their continued success in the NPFL campaign
