Enugu Rangers, Akwa United Maintains Top Spots


Enugu Rangers and Akwa United consolidated top spots in the NPFL groups after wins over Kwara United and Go Round FC, respectively.




Rangers pipped visiting Kwara United 1-0 courtesy of an 80th-minute winner by Felix Ogbuke to end a run of three losses, while Akwa United thanks to a stoppage-time goal by Godspower Aniefiok.
Rangers remain top of Group A with 34 points, same as Akwa United in Group B.
However, Enyimba slipped in their chase to book a top-3 finish in Group A after they fell 1-0 at Rivers United, while MFM FC secured their fifth point on the draw with a 1-1 draw at Wikki Tourists.
Enyimba is second on 28 points and a better goals difference than third-placed MFM FC.
In another Group A game, Katsina United again failed to get a result away from home after they lost 1-0 at relegation-troubled Niger Tornadoes.
In Group B, Plateau United eased their relegation fears after a 2-0 home win over Gombe United with goals by Sikiru Olatunbosun and Bernard Ovoke and El Kanemi Warriors held local rivals Yobe Desert Stars to a goalless draw in Damaturu.
