NPFL: Dominant Enyimba outshine Nasarawa United in Jos

by James Davies

Enyimba laid down a marker for the season as they defeated Nasarawa United 2-1 in a thrilling contest at the New Jos Stadium on Saturday night.

Nasarawa United were denied the use of their home ground, Lafia Township Stadium due to renovation works going on there and the hosts were outplayed in front of a scanty crowd in Jos.

Eight-time Nigeria Professional Football League champions, Enyimba took the lead two minutes after the half hour mark.

Elijah Akanni fired home a powerful shot to make the People’s Elephant dominance count.

George Finidi’s side doubled their advantage five minutes later courtesy of Imo Obot’s fine finish.

Enyimba had to withstand late pressure from the home team after Oche Josiah reduced the deficit three minutes from time.

Josiah nodded home after Ojo Olorunleke denied Ikenna Offor from the spot.

Action will continue in the NPFL with more matches on Sunday.
