Garba looks to transfer window to satisfy Gombe United fans

With three draws from seven home fixtures, Gombe United’s Manager, Manu Garba knows the supporters are beginning to grow restive and has called out for more patience from the fans who are only enjoying top flight league this season after three seasons in the lower division.

Three home draws against Plateau United, Akwa united and Shooting Stars meant the club has dropped six points from a possible nine; enough to trigger a defensive plea from the coach to the teeming supporters as he looks to the soon to be opened transfer window to shop for players. In asking for their understanding, the former coach of the junior national team assured the fans that the technical crew is working very hard to bring out the best from the players.

While dropping points at home, the Desert Scorpions have had it tough going on the road where they have failed to pick a single point.

After 14 games played so far, the club is placed 15th on the log with just one point above the drop, raising doubts and anxiety among the fans who are fearing their darling club would again return to the lower league after just one season.

Reflecting on the team’s performance so far, Garba admits the team has struggled but says he is confident a new Gombe United will emerge soon adding that the incoming transfer window will give him the opportunity to strengthen the squad.

“You will soon see a new Gombe United. We are going to reinforce our attack very well. In all the matches that we have played especially the match against 3SC, we had like seven clear chances which we could have buried but we didn’t take our chances.

“There are games we could have drawn on road but like I said earlier, we did create the chances but we have not been converting those chances, which means we have to try to reinforce our forward lines.

“Definitely we have to buy new players especially in the attacking sector, and God’s willing we are going to see a very good formidable team in the second stage”, Garba told

Gombe’s last outing was an away game at Kano Pillars where they lost by 2-0 courtesy of a Musa Najere brace and the former Golden Eaglets’ coach insisted he is proud of his team’s performance.

“Didn’t you see the match? This is not the game we should have lost if you do a proper reading of the match. We did have our chances but we didn’t take them.

“We lost because of some momentarily loss of concentration so I think it wasn’t a bad game for us”, Garba concluded

Gombe United’s next game is a home fixture against MFM FC of Lagos.
