Akwa United close the gap on league leaders

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.

Go Round, who remain unbeaten...

AS Vita Club cruise as Enyimba get thumped

AS Vita Club stormed to the top of their CAF Confederation Cup Group A with a 3-1 victory over Ivorian side ASEC Mimosas in the second round of matches in the pool on Wednesday night.

The DR Congo side cruised to the home victory after a brace from Emmanuel Ngudikana and a further strike via Ngonda Muzinga handed them the three points.

Gbagnon Badie had earlier given ASEC the lead, but the Ivorians wilted in the second period.

Earlier in the same pool, Ghana side Aduna Stars played to a thrilling...

Lobi Stars pull further clear at the top

Why Enyimba success is key to restoring Nigeria's African pride

The CAF Confederation Cup draw made for very miserable reading for Nigerian football fans.

Out of four clubs, including the two which dropped down from the Champions League, only one will represent the country in the competition's group phase.

It's a sorry state of affairs, and ignoring the accompanying humiliation, the consequence is that years of underperformance at continental level means that Nigeria dropped out of the top 12 countries in CAF's five-year ranking.

Therefore, only one side will...

Three NPFL Talking Points

Death, taxes and Junior Lokosa breaking a mini-drought. Kano Pillars' near unstoppable hitman found himself caged last weekend, but returned with a vengeance this week.

In Aba, Fatau Dauda was restored to the Enyimba line-up and 'rewarded' his coach by getting sent off for violent conduct.

Those two and other juicy bits from last weekend in the Nigeria Professional Football League ...

LOKOSA DOES LIKE LOKOSA DOES

Last weekend, flaming hot league leading scorer Junior Lokosa saw himself smothered...
