Chijioke Akuneto’s fifth minute strike from the penalty spot against Rivers United has ended Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries FC’s six-game winless run in one of Matchday 17 fixtures of the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) decided on Sunday at the Soccer Temple, Agege Stadium.
Prior to this game, the Olukoya Boys have played six league games in which they claimed just three points from two home matches against Enyimba and Lobi Stars and one away draw against Katsina United.
MFM FC started the game well with a commendable display and were awarded a spot kick following a bad challenge on Akuneto inside the visitors box after five minutes of play.
The attacker stepped forward and put the ball beyond Rivers goalkeeper, Abiodun Akande to record his fifth goal of the campaign.
Rivers United dominated the larger part of the proceedings, created numerous goal opportunities and won several free kicks in dangerous positions but failed to make all their attacking moves count in front of goal.
