NNL Super 8: Remo Stars pick final qualification slot

Remo Stars of Shagamu today defeated Delta Force of Asaba 2-i to clinch the final qualification for the 2018/2019 Nigerian Professional Football League season. 

Goals from Aloma Idris on the 21st minute and Captain Victor Mbaoma on the 72nd minute were enough to see the sky blues through to the NPFL, with the lone goal scored by Osita in the 39th minute for Delta force proving ineffectual at the end.

Earlier, Gombe United, Kada City FC and Bendel Insurance FC of Benin had booked their place in the NPFL next season. This brings the total number of teams to participate  in the abridged league this season t o 24 teams.

Remo Stars were relegated at the end of the 2016/2017 season and have muscled their way back to the NPFL after just one season in the lower league
