Go Round Vs Crown FC abandoned due to poor weather


The Nigeria National League game in Omoku between Go Round FC and Crown FC will continue on Thursday morning after the pitch became unplayable following heavy rains at half-time​.

The game started on a dry pitch but as soon as the half-time whistle sounded, the heavens opened up and in fifteen minutes the pitch was too flooded for the game to go on.

Highlights of the first-half saw Nelson Esor almost scoring in the 2nd minute when Crown FC goalkeeper, Araromi Ibukun left his line but Esor’s effort was saved off the line.

A few minutes later Ebuka Akobundu’s long throw-in caused panic in the Crown
FC area but the ball was scrambled away for a corner.

In the 33rd minute, Lanigan Gbenga lurking behind Go Round FC defenders, caught them off guard and his effort went off the upright as fans of the home side heaved a sigh of relief.

After the half-time break, the referees inspected the pitch and decided the game could not be played anymore and it will now continue on Thursday morning at 8am.
