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.
