NPFL: Bala resigns as Kwara United coach

Kwara United coach, Abubakar Bala has resigned from his position with the Harmony Boys after a string of poor results.

Coach Bala’s quest to help Kwara United escape from relegation was dealt another blow at the weekend after they were held to a barren draw by Lobi Stars in a Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) Matchday 17 fixture in Ilorin.

The Harmony Boys had also played to a goalless draw against Bendel Insurance, lost 0-2 to Enyimba and fell 1-2 to Rangers at home in their recent outings.

These unfavourable results leave Kwara United in the relegation zone with 20 points from 17 games and coach Bala has opted to resign.

Bala joined Kwara United from Niger Tornadoes and is the second coach in less than two weeks that has exited a position from NPFL clubs.

Kwara United will be starting life without their erstwhile gaffer in Enugu where they will be up against Rangers in an NPFL Matchday 18 fixture before facing Rivers United (H), Wikki Tourist (A) and end the season with a home fixture against Remo Stars.
