Rivers United midfielder, Obomate Frederick has been passed fit for the club’s match day 18 Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) game against Akwa United.
Obomate suffered a foot injury during the warm up for the club’s match day 17 game against Abia Warriors in Umuahia on Sunday and was promptly replaced by midfielder, Ebuka Nnaebuo.
The midfielder has now been given the all clear to return to action for the club’s game against the Uyo-based Akwa United on Wednesday.
“Obomate suffered a slight foot injury during the warm up for the game against Abia Warriors.
“It wasn’t as if he could not play at all but with the conditions of the pitch (at the Umuahia Stadium on Sunday), I decided not to risk him.
“And I think it was the right decision because the (club’s) doctor (Chukwuemeka Agi) has now examined him and passed him fit for our next game on Wednesday,” the Rivers United technical manager, Stanley Eguma told Rivers United Media.
