Written by Morenike Adebayo on May 12, 2016
Enugu Rangers yesterday maintained top position in the Nigeria Professional Football League despite going down to a two-one defeat against Sunshine Stars in a week sixteen fixture. Enyimba’s game ended in a barren draw with MFM FC. Rivers United secured a narrow one-nil win against Wikki Tourists. Abia Warriors went down to a three-two defeat to Nasarawa United. Warri Wolves shocked Shooting Stars in Ibadan, beating their host two-one. Niger Tornadoes sent Heartland back to Owerri empty handed, edging them two-one.
FC IfeanyiUbah handed Lobi Stars a one-nil defeat. At the Onikan Stadium in Lagos, fans of Ikorodu United watched as their side blew their lead twice in a two-two draw with Plateau United. However, the game in Ilorin did not take place as Giwa FC, who were billed to tackle Akwa United, did not show up. Kano Pillars will face El-Kanemi in Maiduguri to round off the match week, and could go top if they beat their hosts.
