FC Goa striker Darryl Duffy, who suffered a hair line fractured on his shin bone against Mumbai FC, will be replaced by Nigerian striker Dudu Omagbemi, an official FC Goa confirmed today. The former Sporting Clube de Goa striker, who has the experience of playing in India, is expected to sign within a couple of days.

Even though they are presently placed third in the Hero Indian Super League points table, FC Goa have struggled to score goals, with Brazilian striker Reinaldo being offered very little support up front.

Earlier, Brazilian striker Rafael Coelho replaced injured Victor Simoes, after he flew back to Brazil without playing a single match in the ongoing ISL. Rafael, who arrived in Goa on October 29th, will be eligible to play his first match against Chennaiyin FC tomorrow, after completing his transfer from Buriram United in Thailand.

According to the ISL guidelines, an injured player can be replaced by another player until the start of the 10th round.
