Shooting Stars, Heartland dumped out of Aiteo Cup

Four-time champions Shooting Stars were one of the major casualties in the first round of the 2018 Aiteo Cup, losing 5-4 on penalties to third tier Supreme Court in Benin in the round of 64.

The game ended goalless in regulation time, and the Oluyole Warriors failed to win the lottery of the penalty, a missed opportunity to end their trophyless run.

Akwa United began their Aiteo Cup defence with a classy 7-0 victory against Hope of Glory in a fixture played in Port Harcourt on Sunday.

Michael Ibe's 76th-minute strike for 10-man Akwa United sealed a 1-0 away victory against Yobe Desert Stars on a weekend in which league leaders Lobi Stars were defeated.

Akwa, who had to deal with Ayobami Asekunowo's first-half dismissal, are just two points behind Stars, who became the latest heavyweight casualty to stumble in Omoku as they lost 1-0 to Go Round at the Krisdera Hotel Stadium. Shedrack Oghali headed in Akinwale Ogunjobi's 69th-minute cross for the winner.

Saka extends Lobi's lead as Oriental Derby ends goalless

Ayo Saka struck a late winner to extend Lobi Stars' lead to six points, while the ninth Oriental Derby of the season failed to ignite and ended in a goalless affair.

Saka was the match-winner for Stars; the veteran midfielder's 81st-minute effort earning the leaders a 1-0 victory against 10-men Kano Pillars.

Chris Madaki was given his marching orders for a second bookable offence and, within a minute, his dismissal had dire consequences as Saka headed home Ebube Duru's cross.

It was fourth time...

NPFL wrap: Top four remain unchanged

The title-favourites in the Nigeria Professional Football League failed to show the stuff of champions on match-day 14, on an exciting weekend which saw the top four remain unchanged with 29 goals scored.

Lobi Stars completed an impressive comeback to earn a 3-2 home win against Rivers United, a result which ensured they opened a three-point lead at the top. The leaders had trailed at the half-time interval despite going ahead through Ezekiel Mbah's 18th-minute penalty.

The visitors turned the...
