“Unfortunately, I will not play the match against Gombe United because I just joined the team and I am not fit enough to play, maybe the next game coming up on Wednesday against Abia Warriors.

Remo Stars, having lost their last five league games, sit at the bottom of the Nigerian Professional League table with 19 points.
