Akwa United miss chance to close gap at the top

Akwa United missed a big opportunity to close the four-point gap at the top of the Nigerian Professional Football League table after playing out an entertaining 1-1 draw at Rivers United, in a rescheduled match day 22 fixture on Wednesday.

Alhassan Ibrahim was arguably the biggest culprit for the visitors, after he failed to convert a penalty and missed another chance to score late on, opportunities which might come back to hunt third-place Akwa United in the title run-in.

Added to that, Akwa's red-hot striker Alhassan Ibrahim...

There were great goals aplenty this past weekend in the Nigeria Professional Football League, and MFM FC striker Stephen Odey extended his dominance at the top of the goal charts.

But the weekend's biggest talking point came from Nnewi, where FC Ifeanyi Ubah not only lost their 100 percent home win record, but came close to losing all three points against relegation-threatened Gombe United.

Here's a look at that, as well as a few other talking points from game week 31.
