Stephen Odey with two goals on Wednesday helped the Olukoya Boys to the number one position on the NPFL log as they beat hard fighting Rivers United in their rescheduled game at the Agege Stadium.

Odey scored his two goals from the penalty spot in the first half as he took his tally for the season to 12 goals.

MFM FC after 14 games have 27 points.
