Enyimba Close In On Pillars, Wolves

–Rangers revive top three amition with 3-0 win at Crown

Enyimba of Aba are making no pretence about their desire to annex the Glo Premier League title for the seventh time.

The People’s Elephant fought hard to earn a deserved 1-0 win at Kaduna United courtesy of Kingsley Sokari’s strike on the hour, his sixth goal of the season. It was proved just enough to hand manager Kadiri Ikhana’s charges all three points on offer as the two-time African champions moved to the third spot on the log with 54 points, two behind leaders, Kano Pillars and one behind Warri Wolves.

Enyimba’s leap on the log followed leaders, Kano Pillars 0-1 loss at Nasarawa United, with Seun Sogbeso scoring the match winner from the penalty spot eight minutes before the final whistle.

Enyimba will welcome El-Kanemi, 3-0 winners against Nembe City, in wednesday’s Match Day 35 fixture in Aba just as Enugu Rangers entertain Sharks in Port Harcourt as the league cruises to its home stretch.

Perhaps, Sharks of Port Harcourt recorded the biggest upset of the night with a 4-1 annihiliation of Sunshine Stars of Akure at the Sharks Stadium.

CHAN Eagles striker, Christian Pyagbara scored all four goals on the night.

Sharks manager, Gbenga Ogunbote, showed no mercy to his former employers on the night as the Garden City Angels moved to the eight position with 51 points.

Enugu Rangers continued their resurgence with a comprehensive 3-0 win at ‘almost’ relegated Crown of Ogbomoso with goals coming from Matthew Etim, Chinedu Udeagha and Samuel Agba.
