NPFL Week 23: Wikki beat Kano to remain no.1 as MFM lose at home to 3SC

NPFL shooting-stars-3sc-MFM FCWikki Tourist kept their number position on the Nigeria
Professional Football League table; after a comeback 3-1 win over Kano
Pillars in their match in Bauchi on Sunday.

The biggest talking point for many will however be Shooting Stars’ lone goal win in Lagos over hitherto invincible MFM FC.  

Wikki actually came from behind to beat eight-man Kano Pillars as  new addition Alhassan Ibrahim made a dream debut with a brace.

With the latest win Wikki have a three-point cushion at the summit of the NPFL log as they have 41 points from 22 matches.

The reverse fixture in the first round ended 2-1 in favour of Pillars.

On their part Shooting Stars secured a massive 1-0 win over MFM FC in
Lagos on Sunday in their NPFL Match Day 23 tie at the Agege Stadium in
Lagos.

The win for the Oluyole Warriors was not without controversies as
fans of the home team encroached the pitch to register the reservation
to what they described as bias officiating.

The solitary strike for Shooting Stars came from Ebitmi Agogu as he
gave his side vital three points that would be a big boost for their
relegation battles.

This is the first time MFM FC will be losing at the Agege stadium since gaining promotion to the top division.

Elsewhere,  Rangers got vital away points as they forced
Niger Tornadoes to a 1-1 draw in Lokoja while in Nnewi new signings
Wasiu Jimoh and Ismaila Gata got the job done as  FC IfeanyiUbah romped
to a 2-0 win over Rivers
United.
The game between Warri Wolves and Plateau United could not hold owing to heavy downpour, it will now come up 8am on Monday.
