NPFL Championship Play-offs: Enyimba Pip IfeanyiUbah, Secure Top Spot

Enyimba secured top spot in the Nigeria Professional Football League Championship play-offs after edging out oriental rivals FC IfeanyiUbah 3-1 in their matchday four clash at the Agege Stadium on Monday night, reports Completesports.com.

The Peoples Elephant sit at the top of the log with nine points from four games.

Reuben Bala gave Enyimba the lead in the 19th minute dribbling past Sharp Uzoigwe before slotting the ball into the net following a pass from Abdulrahmam Bashir.

IfeanyiUbah fought back and got the equaliser through Promise James in the 31st minute.

Bala restored Enyimba’s lead two minutes before the break firing the ball into the net after Uzoigwe initially blocked his shot.

Bashir got the third goal in the 56th minute to put the game beyond the Anambra Warriors.

The former Nasarawa United striker picked up a pass from Udeagha and shrugged off his marker before firing the ball home.

A win against Akwa United on the final day on Wednesday will see the Aba club a record eight NPFL title.

    Due to the ugly accident that happened at Kano pillars vs Rangers. I thought the league handles supposed to have awarded Rangers the full points thereby penalise kano pillars and their Captain for unlawful behaviours. In Western world such act might lead to next league relegation or even longer Match ban for both the player and the entire Team. But i bet in Naija either party gonna go scott free. Kano pillars are known for such timidly acts but always sells it’s way out. Which is dragging the so naija pro league back.
