Enyimba win oriental derby, plus other Week 13 results

Enyimba FC of Aba

It was a sweet victory for Enyimba International as they triumphed 3-2 over their staunch rivals, Heartland Fc of Owerri, in the star fixture for this weekend in the Nigeria Premier League.

The People’s Elephant made the best use of the neutral venue of the match as Heartland had to opt for the Nnamdi Azikwe, Enugu after their home ground in Owerri was considered not good enough by the NPL.

Before Sundays’ defeat, the last time the Nazi millionaires suffered a home defeat in the hands of the People’s Elephant was in October 2007 when they were humiliated 0-3, 

With this victory, Enyimba are just a point adrift of current table toppers Enugu Rangers.

Enyimba are now on 22 points from 12 matches while Rangers have 23 points from the same number of matches.
