Enyimba picked their second Nigeria Professional Football League win of the season, securing a narrow 1-0 victory against Plateau United at the Umuahia Township Stadium on Thursday, reports

The Peoples Elephant beat Plateau United 3-0 the last time both teams met  in 2011, but had to settle for a slim win this time around.
Paul Aigbogun's men suffered a setback early on when in-form forward, Chukwude Stephen, got injured and was replaced by Ugochukwu Leonard.

Joseph Osadiaye scored the only goal of the game in the 29th minute following a beautiful interplay between him and Christian Pyagbara.

At the Aper Aku Stadium, Makurdi, Nasarawa United beat Ikorodu United 2-0 to record their first win of the season.
Ishaya Anyu put his side ahead in the 21st minute  following a pass from Abdulrahman Bashir.

Bashir registered his name on the score sheet four minutes before the break to make it 2-0 for his side.
Ikorodu United are now without  a win in their  last six games.
