Nembe City’s impressive campaign in the top flight recently received a boost with the arrival of the duo of Ebinipere Dengo (pictured) and Ayuba Job from neighbours, Bayelsa United, club technical, John Aranka, has informed supersport.com.
The youngest top flight side started the 2012/13 season with a road trip victory at Heartland and are placed fourth on the 20-team log ahead of their older neighbours, Bayelsa United on fifth position.
Both teams have 20 points, but Nembe City are ahead on superior goals difference.
“Dengo made his debut at Kano Pillars, while Job was on the bench in our last match against Wikki Tourists. The duo bring quality to Nembe City in the central defence and right back,” Aranka said to supersport.com.
Supersport.com learnt that both players have replaced new Dolphins central defender, Baker Ebiabowei and Sharks-bound Brown Braye, who plays from the right full back position.
Dengo has Premier League experience from defunct Ocean Boys during the 2010/11 season.
On the other hand, Job trained with the Under-20 national team in 2011.
Aranka also confirmed the exit of left-sided midfielder, Asuquo Inyang to Gombe United and two-goal hero, Uche Ugochukwu to Nasarawa United.
"We have capable replacements," the former Under-20 international told supersport.com.
