Enyimba FC has seen another appeal for their points against Doma United to be restored by the Nigeria Football Federation appeal committee rejected, Nigeriasoccernet.com reports.

The committee in its ruling dismissed the appeal of the former league champions based on overwhelming evidence, the referee's report and video evidence.

It will be recalled that the match day between Enyimba and Doma United at the Enyimba International Stadium had ended 1-0, but with controversy.

Enyimba scored a goal after 88mins which the assistant referee raised his flag for offside and the referee agreed. However, after restart, Enyimba fans were said to have stopped the game from going on, forcing the referee to visit the StarTimes OB Van, which led to a change in decision from the referee which he was said to have made due to the tension around him.

Hence, the decision of the NFF disciplinary committee to rule that two points be deducted from Enyimba in the game.
