The game, played in Maiduguri, was rescheduled after it was abandoned last Saturday in Gombe due to crowd trouble.

The Tourists were already 1-0 up before the game was disrupted by Gombe fans.

The league organisers, League Management Company, then ordered a replay and heavily sanctioned Gombe United.

With the result, Wikki remain in the top-flight league, while the Oluyole Warriors are relegated alongside ABS, Gombe and Remo Stars.
