Gateway Bitter Over Officiating In Top-flight

Premier League struggling side, Gateway Football Club, has expressed reservation with the manner of officiating as it concerns its team in the past weeks of the top-flight.
Spokesman of the club, Rotimi Oduniyi, in an interview with did not hide his displeasure with the officiating of Gateway FC’s goalless draw with visiting Enugu Rangers over the weekend at the M.K.O. Abiola Stadium in Abeokuta.
Oduniyi did not stop there, as he added that the Rock City Boys was also robbed of the opportunity of picking a point on the road in last Thursday’s rescheduled game against Warri Wolves, which it lost 1 – 2.
“We are not happy with the way the referees are handling matches. The officiating of our match with Rangers was not encouraging,” said Oduniyi even when he was reminded that his side was playing at home. “It doesn’t matter. But the officiating was not the best. The same thing happened when we played Warri Wolves. The referee cancelled a good goal, which could have given us a point.”
With last weekend’s goalless draw, the Rock City Boys has found itself wallowing in the relegation zone with nine games to the end of this season’s campaign.
But Oduniyi is confident that the club would beat the drop and retain its Premier League status when the championship is concluded next month.
