Enyimba forced Sunshine Stars to a 0-0 draw, while there were home wins for Bayelsa and Warri Wolves in rescheduled league matches yesterday
Sunshine goalkeeper Ikechukwu Ezenwa was at his best to keep Enyimba strikers at bay.
Emeka Nwanna missed a glaring chance to score for Enyimba as the keeper Ezenwa covered well to confuse the experienced striker.
Returning striker Dele Olorundare failed to give Sunshine the lead in the 51st minute and six minutes later, Abdulrahman Bashir missed a scoring chance to put Enyimba ahead.
Musa Najare’s 71st minute penalty was all Warri Wolves needed to beat El Kanemi Warriors 1-0 in Warri.
El Kanemi were resolute before Najare stepped forward to score from the spot kick after Joshua Obaje was brought down in the vital area.
The former Black Leopards of South Africa forward said that the game was tough but they did enough to earn the three points.
