FC Ifeanyi Ubah put up the best display in the Match Day 2 games of the Nigeria Professional Football League, NPFL, played across the country on Wednesday.
The Anambra Warriors overpowered MFM FC as they beat the Olukoya Boys 4-0 in what is the biggest score line so far in the league this season.
FC Ifeanyi Ubah have been in the news for the wrong reasons in recent times after their act in the season opener away to Kano Pillars where they abandoned the game at the Sani Abacha Stadium, midway.
The goals in Wednesday’s game for FC Ifeanyi Ubah came from Yaya Kone in the 13th minute before King Osanga increased the tally and then Oni Imoh made it 3-0 before the end of the first half.
The nightmare for MFM FC was not over just yet as FC Ifeanyi Ubah’s Ifeanyi Onuigbo added another goal in the second half to end the tie 4-0.
There was another commanding performance in Jos where Plateau United thrashed former champions Enyimba 3-1.

Elsewhere, reigning Nigeria League champions, Enugu Rangers, secured their first point of the season as they came from behind to record a 1-1 draw in Lafia against Nasarawa United
