Tempers flare on Match Day 18 of Nigeria Premier League action

Enugu Rangers have fallen flat in their championship defence, causing Imama Amapakabo to be sacked.

This is one weekend that Nigeria league organisers will want to forget. After 17 match days of near hitch-free football, things took a turn for the worse this weekend.

Crowd trouble at two venues led to all manner of negative headlines that overshadowed one very significant road win.

But by far the biggest headline of the weekend was from a team who didn't play domestic football this weekend. Defending champion Enugu Rangers sacked coach Imama Amapakabo, sparking comparisons with Leicester City's...

Alhassan grabs hat trick for Akwa while Nasarawa run riot in NPFL

Akwa United ran out 4-2 victors over Shooting Stars SC.

It was a weekend of cheers and jeers in the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) action.

Akwa United and Nasarawa United both scored four goals apiece, Akwa's Alhassan Ibrahim helping himself to a hat trick in the process.

Accompanying him were his two vice presidents, one of whom is chairman of the league organising body, and a posse of other...

El Kanemi reach home field milestone, Ubong Friday continues Akwa's revival

Plateau United vs. Kano Pillars in Nigerian Premier League
Plateau United kept their perch atop the Nigerian Premier League with an impressive 2-0 win over traditional power Kano Pillars.

ESPN FC correspondent Colin Udoh recaps the week that was in the Nigerian Premier League.

El Kanemi win 20th straight at home

For nearly 12 years, Kano Pillars proved invincible at their home ground, turning the edifice into a fortress where losing was unthinkable.

That record is unlikely to be matched any time soon, but this weekend, El Kanemi Warriors achieved a milestone that should leave even Pillars envious: they recorded their 20th consecutive win on home soil when they beat Niger Tornadoes...
