Nasarawa United extended their unbeaten run in the 2021 Nigeria Professional Football League to six games on Sunday when they snagged a 2-1 win, away at Ozoro, against Warri Wolves.
The Lafia Boys secured one of the two away wins recorded among the matchday six games played across the country on Sunday and they had to come from behind to defeat Warri Wolves 2-1 in Ozoro.
Uche Ihuarulam gave Wolves the lead in the 21st minute and they held onto that slim lead all through the first half.
Nasarawa United’s breakthrough came a little after the hour-mark when Silas Nwankwo netted the equaliser in the 63rd minute before Chinedu Ohanachom fired the visitors in front with 12 minutes left on the clock.
Hard as Warri Wolves tried to salvage at least a point from Sunday’s game, it was Nasarawa United who held onto their unbeaten start to the season.
The Lafia-based team are top on the NPFL log with 14 points while Warri Wolves are 15th on the log.
