Enyimba continue resurgence with slim home win
Champions Enyimba continued their surge up the Nigeria league table after they edged past Nasarawa United 1-0 on Saturday.
Enyimba are now eighth on the table with 27 points from 15 matches.
Both Enyimba and Nasarawa have been involved in continental competitions and hence their backlog of matches.
The unlikely match winner was leftback Chima Akas, whose free kick from 25 yards in the 31st minute went past goalkeeper Suraj Ayeleso to separate the two teams.
Enyimba star striker Mfon Udoh was forced out of the game early in the second half after crunching tackle. He was replaced by Joseph Osadiaye.
