The Elephants are back thumping
Enyimba FC are back to winning ways, after a five-match winless run, with a 2-0 win over oriental rivals, FC Ifeanyi Ubah in Wednesday’s Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) rescheduled game in Calabar.
Skipper of the People’s Elephant, Mfon Udoh, scored and assisted another goal to help the seven-time champions get back their momentum in their title campaign after failing to win in five games prior.
Joseph Osadiaye scored the opener, which was assisted by Udoh, after 32 minutes. And Udoh made it 2-0 with two minutes of normal time left to seal maximum points for the homers.
The win takes Enyimba to eighth in the table with 18 points, while FC Ifeanyi Ubah remain just two points above the relegation zone .
MFM hold on tight
Wikki Tourists were held to a 1-1 draw by MFM FC at the Abubakar Tafawa Balewa Stadium in Bauchi.
MFM entered the game without the impressive duo Stephen Odey and Sikiru Olatunbosun.
It’s the Olukoya Boys’ second successive away draw after an impressive one-all draw at Enyimba over the weekend.
Shammah Tanze found the back of the net to help the Tourists get the opener after 35 minutes.
But Stanley Okorom was to secure a point for the visitors after scoring the equaliser in the 61st minute.
MFM FC maintain the third position on the log on 21 points, with a game in hand, while Wikki Tourists are at the bottom of the table with 12 points.
