By Adeboye Amosu: FC Ifeanyiubah striker, Godwin Obaje, has been ruled out of the club’s next two fixtures in the Nigeria Professional Football League, against MFM FC and Wikki Tourists, due to a knee injury, reports Completesportsnigeria.com (CSN).
Obaje was substituted in the 25th minute of the Anambra Warriors’ 2-0 win against Kwara United on Sunday after opening the score for his team two minutes earlier, his third goal of the campaign.
The Nnewi club who have relied heavily on his goals this season, will now have to cope with his absence in their next games in Lagos and Ilorin.
“It’s a minor injury but I won’t play our next two games against MFM FC and Kwara United,” Obaje confirmed in chat with CSN.
“I’m disappointed as the two games are away from home and I won’t be there to help the team.
“The positive is that it is not a long term injury and I hope to be back as earlier stated.”
