Match between Enyimba and Sunshine was goalless
Enyimba forced Sunshine Stars to a 0-0 draw at home while there were home wins for Bayelsa and Warri Wolves on Thursday.
Sunshine goalkeeper, Ikechukwu Ezenwa, tried his best to keep Enyimba strikers from hitting the net with goals. Emeka Nwanna missed a clear chance to score for Enyimba as Ezenwa acted well enough to confuse the experienced striker. Dele Olorundare, in several failed attempts, could not give Sunshine the lead in the 51st minute; and six minutes later, Abdulrahman Bashir, missed a scoring chance to put Enyimba ahead.
Musa Najare’s 71st minute penalty was the only goal with which Warri Wolves used in beating El Kanemi Warriors 1-0 in Warri. El Kanemi was resolute before Najare stepped forward to score from the spot kick.
“It was a tough game. El Kanemi gave us a good fight but we won. The three points were the most important thing and we earned them,” Joshua Obaje, a Warri Wolves player, told journalists after the game.
Bayelsa United defeated Sharks by a lone goal scored by Mutiu Adegoke in the 20th minute.
