Reprieve has come the way of the coaching crew of Adamawa United after securing a 1-0 victory over Lobi Stars in the Match Day 12 of the 2020/21 Nigeria Professional Football League season.
Prior to this game at the Pantami Stadium, Gombe, Adamawa Utd had remained the only team in the league without a win after 11 games.

Substitute Stanley Nnanna broke the deadlock in Gombe in the 78th minute after tapping home from a close range with an assist from Sadiq Lawan.
It was a disappointing result for Lobi Stars who have only won a game in February and sought to end the month with a victory.
