NPFL: Insurance hold Enyimba in Aba, MFM maintain spot despite Kwara loss




Enyimba failed to go top of Group A of the NPFL even after leaders MFM FC fell 1-0 at Kwara United, while Akwa United maintained leadership in Group B after 2-0 win over Gombe United.

MFM remain top of their section with 23 points, while Enugu Rangers leap-frogged Enyimba to move into second place after a 1-0 win over visiting Katsina United.

Both Rangers and Enyimba are on 21 points apiece but ‘The Flying Antelopes’ enjoy a better goals difference.

Niger Tornadoes remain rock bottom of the group after a first-half match winner by Wasiu Jimh for hosts Rivers United.

In Group B, Akwa United posted a comfortable home win over Gombe United even without injured NPFL leading scorer Mfon Udoh.

They have 25 points, same as El Kanemi Warriors, who lost 2-1 at Kano Pillars.

Visiting Heartland compounded the problems of Plateau United after they held the Jos club to a goalless draw.

Yobe Desert Stars are bottom of the group after they were held to a scoreless draw by Delta Force.

They have 11 points from 14 matches.
