Kingdom Osayi has not conceded a goal in the NPFL since October 29 against Shooting Stars.

Doma United goalkeeper Kingdom Osayi is not only writing his name in history books in the NPFL but also standing out from the crown after extending his clean sheet record in the Football League. 

Osayi’s resilience and skill came to the fore again as he helped Doma United see off Niger Tornadoes following a narrow 1-0 win on Saturday.

Nelson Adam was the hero for the Savannah Tigers after his goal in the first half of added time proved decisive as the winner at the Pantami Stadium. 

The victory not only saw Doma return to the top of the standings but also ensured Osayi extended his clean sheet record to seven consecutive matches. 

Doma’s goalkeeper and his defenders have not conceded a single goal since Ibadan Warriors Shooting Stars smashed three past them in a thrilling affair back in Oct 29, 2023.

While the streak started slowly and quietly, Osayi has gone on to prove it’s no fluke with some eye-catching performances against some of the big boys in the league.

He has kept clean sheets against defending champions, Enyimba, contenders Remo Stars, former champions Akwa United and Plateau United, and Bendel Insurance in that time

While Doma United’s defence, which has contributed to the record of nine clean sheets in 11 matches so far, has also played a pivotal role, Osayi’s impressive individual brilliance remains a standout feature of an otherwise solid unit,
