Enyimba overtake Sunshine at top of Nigeria Premier League

Six-time champions Enyimba have overtaken Sunshine Stars at the top of the Nigeria Premier Football League.

The two-time CAF Champions League winners, shot to the summit yesterday after playing a 1-1 draw with Rangers in a match-day 20 fixture at the Enyimba International Stadium. Striker Onoriode Odah shot Rangers into the lead in the ninth minute after he earlier missed a one-on-one situation with goalkeeper Femi Thomas.

But Enyimba’s new signing Musa Najere marked his debut with a goal against his old team in the 37th minute to level the game at 1-1. It remained so till the end of regulation time. But it was a bad day for Sunshie Stars as they relinquished their top spot to Enyimba, after a surprise 1-0 loss to Taraba FC in Jalingo.

Wikki Tourits complete the top three, after playing a barren draw with Heartland in Bauchi.
