Gbagada FC 1 - 1 Dino
Gbagada’s Struggles Continue as they’re held to a draw against Dino
Gbagada and Dino were inseparable as they shared the spoils in their first TCC League game of the season.
The Blue Eagles came into the contest on the back of a five-game losing streak (in TCC). Coach Akinyelu was seeking to start the year on the right foot, and start well they did. After what was a quick start to the game, Wasiu Balogun would put Gbagada in front after finding the back of the net.
Rattled but undeterred by conceding first, Dino picked themselves up and started asking questions of the Gbagada defense. What has been a shaky department for Gbagada this season would once again cave in to the pressure in the 30th minute as Gabriel Achihi was on hand to put one past the goalkeeper.
The remainder of the first half and the second half would see both sides attempt to score the odd goal. However, it wasn’t to be as Gbagada and Dino had to settle for a draw. For Dino, it’s a point that they’d cherish in their quest to keep up with the log leaders. For Gbagada, there’s plenty to ponder upon as the old story continues in a new year.
