Gombe United to get double bonus for Kano Pillars draw

The Savannah Scorpions will get twice of the match allowance if they secure a draw against the Sai Masu Gida in Kano

Gombe United players and officials have been promised double bonus if they pick a draw against Kano Pillars at the Sani Abacha Stadium on Sunday.

The Gombe based outfit earns 30,000 naira for away win, but an away draw against Kadiri Ikhana's men could see them received 60,000 naira.

Following a 1-1 home draw against Shooting Stars, the Manu Garba's men suffered their third home slip in four games, securing only win in their last six games.

The Savannah Scorpions will face Kadiri Ikhana's men who have only lost a game in their last seven matches and the management is eager to turn this around.

"We have been motivated for the match by the management," a player told Goal on anonymity.
