The remaining minutes of the final 2016/2017 NPFL season game between relegated Gombe United and Wikki Tourists will be concluded at the Elkanemi Sports Complex in Maiduguri on Saturday.

Gombe United were losing 1-0 to the Bauchi Elephants in front of their fans last Saturday before the home supporters disrupted the game and forcing the match officials to call off the game at the Pantami Stadium, Gombe.

The game was called off in the 23rd minute and it is expected to continue from there when the two sides take to the pitch in Maiduguri on Saturday by 4pm. The game is to be played behind closed doors.

Gombe United are relegated already but can do Shooting Stars a favour if they can turn the game around and record a victory against the relegation threatened visitors.

Wikki Tourists on the other hand have their destiny in their own hands; they only need to avoid defeat to keep their NPFL status.
