Defending champions, Enugu Rangers needed an 82nd minute Kelvin Itoya’s goal to win their game against El Kanemi warriors, as their title defence continue to prove so difficult.
Kano Pillars survived the onslaught of Sunshine Stars as their disciplined backline proved so difficult to penetrate. And they deservedly took home the point.
Eta Okon Otop’s second minute strike was all that was needed by newly promoted Go Round as they shut out Abia Warriors in a closely contested game.
