Matchday 11 rescheduled: Rangers 1-0 Kano Pillars
Matchday 13 rescheduled: Enyimba 2-0 Kwara United
Enyimba join the title contenders following five straight wins, which put behind their disturbing start to the season. The defending champions, who found themselves in the relegation zone up till recently, have risen to No 5, six points behind leaders Plateau United and having three games on hand.
This evening in Aba, Stanley Dimgba gets on the score sheet as early as the fifth minute while Victor Mbaoma seals victory with a goal five minutes to the end.
In Enugu, Rangers struggle but eventually had an edge over Pillars through a 75th goal by Chinonso Eziekwe. That result lifts the Flying Antelopes out of the bottom four, where Warri Wolves now feature. Like Enyimba, Rangers also have three outstanding matches that can further improve their fortunes.
