Lagos-based MFM Football Club on Sunday drew 1-1 against less-fancied Remo Stars FC in a Match Day 19 fixture of the 2018/2019 Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) Group A.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the hosts came from behind after a shot from Elijah Akanni had created a goalmouth scramble in the 60th minute.
Remo Stars FC had drawn the first blood in the 23rd minute through Victor Chidume.
The draw was the third home draw by MFM FC this season.
This had started with Enyimba FC, a game they drew 1-1 on Match Day 14.
They then recorded a 0-0 draw against the Lobi Stars.
It was the first time Remo Stars FC were picking a point at the Agege Stadium, after five meeting between both teams.
A distraught MFM FC Coach, Fidelis Ilechukwu, however refused to say much at the end of the match, though he did say the game was not what he expected.
“I cannot comment on the match because this is not what I expected, he said.
Remo Stars FC’s goalscorer Chidume, on his part, said he was extremely happy to have scored against the team he has much respect for.
“I am extremely happy to score the goal, though they came back to draw level. I respect the team so much because of their pedigree in the league.
“It wasn’t a bad result for us. At least we were able to secure a point. Because nobody gave us a chance,” he said.
