Sunshine Stars over the weekend recorded the biggest away victory so far this season in the Nigeria Premier League as they humiliated Heartland FC 0-3 at the Dan Ayiam stadium in Owerri.
The victory in Owerri was surprising for many as the Akure Gunners have struggled to win their own home matches, requiring last ditch efforts to win the last two games.
However it was all different in Owerri where Tunde Adeniji scored twice and Prince Aggreh completed the tally with a late goal to give Sunshine stars the vital three points to shoot them to 3rd spot on the log.
The defeat suffered by Heartland saw them vacating the top spot, replaced by Giwa FC who trounced visiting Bayelsa United 3-1 at the Jos Township Stadium.
Also in Port Harcourt, there were plenty of goals to savour as FC Taraba forced Sharks FC to a 2-2 draw while the other Garden City team, Dolphins secured a 2-0 win over Lobi Stars.
Thompson Stowe and Chiamaka Madu scored for Sharks while Mohammed Usman and Chinedu Ohanachom ensured the Jalingo club had a share of the spoils.
Elswehere, league newcomers Gabros FC gave no chance to former league champion, Enyimba as they defeated the Aba Landlords a 2-0 bashing.
The Shooting Stars vs Warri Wolves match was the only fixture that could not take place as a result of continental assignment for the Delta state team.
